cirrhosis of dream

the beast is dead
not fallen in battle
but at the hand
of all encompassing ego

they didn’t even
even inform me
of the untinely demise
just casually
flung the corpse
to the side of the road
before drunkenly
speeding away

so i pour the liquor
out in memorial
the same stuff
that led to the death
and close another chapter
that sputtered out
before it had even
truly gotten started
the barb of betrayal
still dripping poison
to scar the earth
as i bury the dream
