but aren't they all random?

A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

drunk is a poor excuse

drunk is a poor excuse
to be the person you already are
and will always be,
when you're drunk,
and shake the strong inhibition you make
for the sake of the ones who you want
to keep close

and not see the worst.
until it's too late
or too much, when the person
you already are means
to have a say, come out
after all this time and play,
or maybe it's just

another day. But
either way,
it's a poor excuse.
