On Writing · poetry

I prefer that to whiskey and ghosts.

Does the storyteller aways have a

Spirit in hand,

Alone in the dark

While spinning his tale?

Or can it be a wish?

Maybe a child?

A lover?

A hope?

A thought?

A feeling?

One that isn’t failure, I mean.

Or maybe just a cup of tea-

I prefer that to whiskey and ghosts.
