on making the right investment.

choosing to battle it out with poetry instead of pills

that darkness and negativity and depression and anxiety and their hundred other cousins that come creeping up my door unsolicited

hammering them all down without getting hammered

buying books over vodka

turning to stories instead of stores

opening up myself in my notebook instead of ripping open those bottles in my hand

turning page after page rather than emptying glass after glass after glass

yes i am letting the words save me tonight

yes ink is all the poison i need.
