Alcoholic

His breath reeked of alcohol

Streaming…

Steaming from his pores

At 7 o’clock in the morning

As we sipped coffee at the Waffle House

In Columbus Ohio

We’re no good thing commeth

And I knew

Without a doubt

That he was an alcoholic

I said goodbye

And thanked him

For this season…
