Break by Brenton Booth

It’s after midnight
and everybody in
Sydney is asleep
but me
whiskey and coke
by my side
dreaming about
beautiful girls
I will never
know
wondering if
Socrates got
something better
than the ‘ prison
cell’ he called
the body
when he happily
drank down
the poison and
said goodbye:
was his soul
finally free to
truly exist
without
restriction?
I guess I will
find out one
day for myself
but for now
the whiskey
and coke and
2 weeks off
work are
enough
and hopefully
stay that way.
