Poems: Whiskey

Whiskey

Alongside the table
he sidled up to her
one shot glass of whiskey in his hand
another still hanging on his breath
like an offender
fresh out of jail.

She stepped back
in self-defense.

He could not understand
why she would not be enamored by him.

After all,
he had drunk enough charm
to obliterate doubt.
