CONTEMPORARY POETRY: WORDPLAY

Psychotic and neurotic
alcoholism seems to be the only –ism I ascribe to consistently
what with other philosophies too highfalutin for my taste,
pedantic, pretentious and perfunctory
when all I want is perfection
and I find it in a bottle,
houses of wine or Whitney, epiphanies
inspiration, contemplation, elation, vacation
satiation in abuse
abuse of substance, the substantial body god has blessed me with
and I kiss life goodbye, a final blowjob for the road, not road head
a farewell to the arms I’ve taken up in order to exist.
