Ode To The Hungover Man

You stumbling, shambling man

You dry mouthed, sore headed warrior

Memory, recent but impossible to grasp taunts you

Did you say that?

Did you mean that?

Did you really drink that?

Though the haze bacon and caffeine ring clear

Safe harbours in the chemical storm of your own making

The throbbing of your head plays the beat of a song that takes you back

To laughter and dancing and glorious abandon

A kiss

Her smile

You smile

Your stomach wrenches you back to the present as it somersaults

After relief and more shambling, you cocoon yourself

A survivor and liver of life

“Here’s to the next time” your mind mumbles

As you flee to sleep once more
