Vanilla Vodka

August 26, 2019 AG-web@dmin

I am drinking again.
Vanilla vodka, so the cops won’t come after me
when I sit in my car on white afternoons
& think of how it’s as though the sun has been extinguished
because I am a windowpane
you’ve been looking through
instead of at
which must mean I’m made of glass,
hard & breakable in the same instant.
