The Bottle and the Whore


I might have likened the bottle
more than the whore
the drink often brought peace and sleep
but also her too
sometimes a room full of unwanted types
the restless,with a grudge
the music would disappear
and blurriness replaced sight
often anger
it’s quiet tonight
I must not have seen her
words and pages tell me so.
