Gratitude

going to see
 1
my favorite Irish folk punk band
 2
was not the endurance contest that i feared
 3
it could have been
 4
 
 
but there were moments
 5
 
 
especially when they sang
 6
three "whiskey" songs
 7
in a row
 8
 
 
i never liked whiskey
 9
but i thought about vodka
 10
 
 
clean and clear
 11
ordered by the double
 12
with club soda and lime
 13
served in a pint glass
 14
 
 
the taste of so many summers
 15
so many falls
 16
winters and springs
 17
 
 
i shrugged those memories off
 18
clapped my hands and shook my ass
 19
to the music
 20
 
 
when the show was over
 21
i left
 22
 
 
now i am home
 23
with my DVD collection
 24
my lemongrass green tea
 25
and my vegan tacos
 26
 
 
i made it through another night
 27
 
 
so
 28
for another morning
 29
instead of looking in the mirror
 30
and saying "fuck you"
 31
i can say "thank you"
 32
