Canned Heat

21 / 30

Canned Heat

Runniní on empty
at least itís how I feel
for the alphabets
in my tank
running dangerously
low

I turned to my Bourbon
for inspiration
but all I tuned into
was romantic mush ----
crap I used to spill
years ago

Downing the heat
in a can, a bottle, a glass
used to inspire anew!
Today it is only kicking
my ass & making me blue ----
causing me to delve deeper
into those years ago
I thought I had stowed
away

I must have forgotten to
hide the key somewhere
besides under the
welcome mat

Tis what usually occurs
from too much
heat
