Spillage by Jon Bennett

“Gimme a cold beer!” he says
It’s what dreams are made of
if you live in a dry county
or have a failing liver
or are, like me,
a dry drunk
“A cold beer, please!”
Though what I’d really say is,
“2 shots Old Taylor,
2 High Lifes”
2 of each because
when you’re shaking that bad
you know 2 will get
knocked over
on the way
up.
