“Broken Bottles Of Vodka” – Michael Marrotti

Each trip to

the liquor store

is a night of


Both words

and actions

last longer

than a hangover

Each conquered

drink is another

moment seized


in my mind

The belligerent

memory remains

Every broken bottle

Each neglected


All these

inebriated actions

to soothe your pain

Spawns enough

resentment to

last a lifetime

Which brings me

to these words

I’ve meant to say

but never had

the courage

until now

I hate you

for who you are

and your refusal

to change
