Drink Through

From 3:AM:

Sit in silence in the dark. Vibrate vigorously. Roll on your side. Picture tight, glistening calves and dark eyebrows.

Have sex with two different men named Paul Davis in the course of a month. Boost your immune system. Drink through your middle years. Look good but shorter.

Gather kindling. Learn the names of trees. Call your mother with hope. Call every day.

Lift a car off the ground. Break a bone. Become a mouse with a special skill.

Remember a woman you do not know anymore. Picture her chic haircut, dangerous sunglasses, splash of scarf, bright lipstick, and expensive luggage. Consider a story is the way you dress.

“Score”, Laurie Stone, 3:AM
