Now when I reach

for My Life Glass

it is not to quench

My Unquenchable Thirst

drug-induced —

that craving is gone forever

now when I reach

for My Beautiful Glass

it is to take in

the moderate fare

of My Drug-free* Living

by one or two sips


*still taking 1mg Clonazepam for sleep to be weaned off

after My Children leave
