Ha! — would a madman have been so wise as this? — Week Four — Drabble


At Last

Madness rests upon the mouth of a bottle—pellucid, silent.
Insanity hunkers under the surface of reason—specious,
hushed. Fear rushes the blood—dries out the tongue.
Self-preservation jolts the brain—thirst makes
all the choices. Thirst makes all the choices.
At last, I can hear the words.
