Jules by Moly Tov

Another beer in
The honey suds
Go down smooth

But she still feels
The rough spots
Of built-up filth
Sitting on the surface

Alcohol never was
A suitable solvent

It got the liver
Well-liquidated though
And sometimes
That was enough

A familial lie
She’d been telling

The repetition
Gave credibility
To the blatant
