portraits of red and grey #6

vodka party!

stolichnaya
bottles in every hand
                                  ( pepper vodka
                                     lemon vodka )
drink after drink after

it's my first-ever drink
i'm not sure what to do
                                     how much to swallow
it feels burning hot
                              then fuzzy
( tastes horrible )

i feel taller
i feel my way along wails towards the bathroom
spinning
slumping
               ( a loud shout? somewhere? knocking? )
back into marshie's room
crumbling into a corner
maybe it's late

later

i find my room door key fumbling fall

phil's in the can
                         ( for hours )
i'm banging on the door
he won't come out

pissing in a pop bottle
careful aim in desperation

flopping onto
                      i hope
a bed

falling into a pitch black spiral
passing out

out

Next in portraits of red and grey…
