the lies we tell

The lies we tell

I drink half a bottle of red wine
In the evening.
The wine I drink is expensive
The bottle cost 6 euros.
I only buy half a bottle
Should I buy a full one
I will drink it all
And feel bad about my lack
Of willpower.
I see my cardiologist
3 times a year
And stay sober a week before I see her
I know she will ask
If I drink
I can look her squarely in the eyes
And say, No doctor.
