Ready for a Drink
Pulled your golden thread, not to hinder,
but to follow.
Now with all the stupid shit I’ve said and done,
already I hope
you haven’t judged my heart
hollow. Although, if there’s one thing I am—
just like Omar Khayyam, baby girl
—it’s ready for a drink.
And you know this old boy’s gonna need
a little more than
an itty-bitty swallow.
