I say where is my whiskey and


you say if it was up your

ass you’d know it and I say


were at least in my head trying

to avoid being 100% asshole even though


my 50% asshole minimum is usually 2000%

too much for you and so instead


I pretend to laugh and look for

my aforementioned whiskey which apparently I left


in the kitchen by the sink while

I was refilling the ice cube tray


which lay empty on the counter next

to the open loaf of bread and


yes there’s the dirty knife damn it I love you.
