wine

– brianprince

sometimes (on the way to work)
i’ll take a swig
straight from
the red wine
bottle on top
of the fridge

just to defy (this adult life)
the human race
and it’s faith
in all of it’s
own rules
it’s “don’t do’s.”

and
on the contrary (as a kid)
i was told i
“can do anything i
put my heart into,”
from behind
a nightly
glass of
wine.

epitome

– brianprince

it’s trendy now
to say
i can’t afford it
i’m poor
been laid off
screwed by someone
taken a pay decrease
furlough forced
turn to the government
for more

we lost our
common, love, & unity
sense

since we’re all in the
same boat, why? do
we hold it against
our
harmony.
