Day Defeat

day defeat
drinking beers is vacuous,
keeping fit is temporary,
hate poisons others,
love poisons the self.

life is loss
so instead of running
away from fate
I drink those beers
and flirt with
death.

She wants me.
I tease her
and then retreat
but she’ll get me
in the end.
She gets us all.
