Good Whiskey

Good Whiskey

A Poem by J.Sin

Thursday, October 26th, 2017 – Banská Bystrica, Slovakia – 20:40pm


Bottle on the nightstand,

Thousand-page book on the post-sexed sheets,

Nourishment for the ego.

Id gone bipolar,



Choking on its own


My skin twitches in yearning

For the cold, robust stone of those necessary walls

Built from old hate and unrestrained paranoia.

Regressing thoughts carry me, deposit me

Hilariously catatonic

Somewhere on the insides of a sociopath’s


Every breath momentarily dependent on

Every other breath.

My heartbeat cheerleading the massacre

Of my hopes,



            And sensibilities.

F**k this.

I walk outside and climb into my charcoal-grey Impala,

Pull the rusted keys from the pocket of my torn jeans,

            The portable bottle opener and Pikachu

 " minus one leg "

rattling against each other,

and I turn the ignition.

The Impala roars to life

Clouds of unrestricted exhaust pour into the neighbourhood,

An endangered bird dies somewhere in the park nearby,

A permanent epitaph to “KOOL”.

Silhouette on the sidewalk touching the tips of her Doc Martens.

She raises the near-empty bottle of Jameson,

Takes a long drink as the Impala’s rubber squeaks on the concrete curb,

And as a final obligation to our cancerous lust,

Of my consistent infidelity,

She hurls the near-empty bottle through the rear window.

This is why our love was fatal…

This is why we’ve never been in the same caste…

I might f**k everything that moves…

But she…


… wastes good whiskey!

This is pretty great. I think it reads very nicely and the positioning really helps bring that (and the feeling) together. Its rough nature helps it feel genuine and create an honest feeling. Well done!
