The Worst Drunk Poem I’ve Ever Written

The Worst Drunk Poem I’ve Ever Written

– Poetry by Laura Mota – April 29, 2019

lemon gin and tonic

I found in the pocket
of the jeans I wore last night
a yellow note:
from the triple g&t
an obscene straw points to her.
one more mental romance.
the lemon was laying as a fetus in the glass.
I laughed
then took my phone
and booked an appointment
with a therapist.
it is time to talk about him.
