' crapshoot

i can get sloppy drunk
smack my head
on the edge of a pool-table
at suzy Q's
and get a ride home from the bartender
because i'm a preferred customer

or i can drink bourbon
down on ingersoll
with the newspaper reporters
match them
bullshit for hyperbole
on local politics
and the iraq war

or i can drink straight black velvet at home
piss on the kitchen floor
and get stabbed with a steak-knife
by my italian blooded wife

or i can axe drink altogether
lift weights
run three miles
and cut up a bowl of fresh vegetables.

rolling off the basement mattress
onto my hands and knees
each morning
i never know

which

contrary to
bukowski's
fictional
bullshit

is not nearly
laughable
as it
sounds. '
