Poem: Liquor, Lotto, Beer, Wine

Walking the Red Road to Wellbriety these days means a lot,

It means healing,
Working tirelessly to heal,
When we don't know where to place our feet next,

Liquor,
Lotto,
Beer,
Wine,

Lotto tickets,
Gamble,
While shaky inside,
The soul reaches,
But hidden,
Invisible,
Black hair,
Grab the steering wheel,
Drive to the party store,

While shaky inside,
Generational pain,
Liquor,
Lotto,
Beer,
Wine,

Yellow windows,
Old tiles,
Blue cup,
Stinky beer with ice,

My eyes fill up with tears,
Hot summer day,
The motor of the pool,
Generational pain,
Invisibly urban NDN,
Chain link fence,
Locked in,
Locked away,

Cement,
Sidewalk,
City fumes,
Fill our spirits,
Distractions,

Prayers to Migizi for healing.
