thinking of Ahab…

thinking of Ahab…
where is my leviathan…
great creature lay before me…
a life-long challenge…

facing the page…
looking to the bottle…
how do thoughts pour upon thee…
why does wine go down so easily…

headaches and heartaches…
suffering for a sentence…
dying for a drink…
or…maybe just dying…

a year was made easy…
booze…woman…comfort…
now its back to the streets…
now its back to writing…

thinking of Ahab…
where is my leviathan…
great creature lay before me…
a life-long challenge…

my harpoon is ready…
sharpened…
i seek the blank slate…
and this i know to be true…

do not runaway from fear…
it will catch you every time…
you fat page…
words will kill you…

thinking of Ahab…
where is my leviathan…
great creature lay before me…
a life-long challenge…
