Daytime drinking on a rainy Monday
is always going to make me think of
If you met her now, you would not
have any idea why she’s the reason I
scared myself straight
for almost a decade.
The last time I saw my mother drink,
I bought her a shot of top shelf whiskey
at one of my features.
Like a real fucking grown up.
