Ballad of a Teenage Drinker

Title says it all


6. Questions


Whenever they 

ask why I drink,

I like to quip 

an old Hemingway:


Write drunk, edit sober.


But, they insist, what do you write?


Things an alcoholic does.

Poetry, half baked novels

little things you will never see


I write this, with a glass of wine in my hand,

hoping to not be caught,

these lies

these lies.
