J.J. Campbell- Three Poems


not exactly the friendly type
 
people come
in here, see
me and then
quickly look
away
 
i'll only bite
you if you
ask nicely
 
a bottle of red
 
just finished my
third glass of wine
 
they say one glass
is good for your
heart
 
i hope the other
two are good for
healing old wounds
 
drink away the pain
 
a bottle of jack
daniels and a tall
glass
 
these are the nights
when you try your
best to drink away
the pain
 
misery is when
you wake up the
next morning
 
hope is knowing
one day you won't
