On the Rocks- IV

On the Rocks-IV

You glow brighter than my bottle
More fiery than my glass
Fiercer than the fire I flick at,
Every time I light

No surprise that I can’t drink my fill
Of you, or my liquid gold
Better than falling asleep cold
and unloved
This is a better path to
Respite
My liver might not
thank me tomorrow, but
My heart will thank me tonight.
