quick as a drink

Charles Bukowski; Barfly, Hank Moody; Californication, Karen Walker; Will &
Grace, Ben Sanderson; Leaving Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson ; Fear & Loathing in
Las Vegas and Where The Buffalo Roam, Otis Campbell; The Andy Griffith Show,
among many others they all share one thing in common, they're drunks.
Glorified, comedians, real people, fictitious, criminalized, laughed at, cried
for, mourned over.
The one thing I have in common with all of these characters, fiction or non is
that I too am a drunk.
In fact,
I couldn't write this now without the magic of the 3am levels.
So am I the Bukowski ? Moody ? Walkers ? Sanderson ? Thompson ? Campbell ?

One thing is for certain. I will be hurting
when I wake,.. blossom by afternoon,...
and come alive in the evening,...
Where I remain until the wee hours of the morn.

Is it worth it?
I think booze and creativity go together like coffee and cigarettes.
I do take...
that first drink.
Will I regret?
Cuz I'll likely forget.
