A Bottle of Wine

The clock on the wall is

approaching half past nine,

you reach for the bottle

and pour a glass of wine.

An empty glass stands

along with your own,

you clink them together

so as not to feel alone.

You raise your glass

and whisper a soft salutation,

put it to your lips and swallow

it back without any hesitation.

You repeat the process

until the bottle is gone.

Now feeling numb you have

the strength to carry on.
