UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY - 08/2012

ADAM GALANSKI

Only When I'm Drunk

The world is yearning, and I sit here-
Typing madly while the whiskey burns my throat
Connected and anonymous, a polished plastic,
The body politic works furiously to deny its castration.
So far gone while the world yearns for change,
I type madly while the whiskey burns my throat.
Only now am I certain.
Only now am I bold.
The rest of my days are left
Poisoned with sober ambiguity
