Ms. Marcella Francesca

Wordplay






Psychotic and neurotic
 alcoholism seems to be the only –ism I ascribe to consistently
 what with other philosophies too hifalutin for my taste,
 pedantic, pretentious and perfunctory
 when all I want is perfection
 and I find it in a bottle,
 houses of wine or Whitney, epiphanies
 inspiration, contemplation, elation, vacation
 satiation in abuse
 abuse of substance, the substantial body god has blessed me with
 and I kiss life goodbye, a final bl*wj*b for the road, not road head
 a farewell to the arms I've taken up in order to exist.
