Praying to Bukowski

I drank all my available liquor in my cabinet
Then I quit drinking for 3 weeks
I don't have an alcohol problem
Just wanted to lose a few pounds
Truth is I didn't miss the booze
Started exercising again
Felt some clarity in my brain pocket
Problem was, I missed myself
That little bit of libation cheered my soul
Took the edge off work which is stressful and annoying
Friday night I poured 3 fingers of Basil Hayden's neat
Eased back in my living room and sipped slow
Felt the beautiful fire and glow
At peace with my whiskey
Back to an old friend
Still exercising
Still stressed out
Feeling like me again
Writing dirty poems
Praying to Bukowski
Lusting in my erotic wonderland
Taking time out to enjoy
Spiritual gospel of whiskey
I don't have an alcohol problem
I said that already didn't I
You've got beautiful eyes, you know ?
