sip

the ocean
or
the desert
can kill you
by dehydration

but the desert
doesn’t act
nearly
as fucking smug
about it

there is a lesson
in that
but i am
too thirsty
to see it

drowning in whiskey
yet always
thirsty
for another
sip

i gave up
drinking things
that just
make me more
thirsty

but
it turns out
water doesn’t
have quite the same
kick

an ocean of whiskey
or
a desert of tears
either one can kill you
if you sip too much
