There is a thing, a drinking thing
Where -- as you drink more and feel --
The bliss that grows, it is pretty nice.
I don't mean the other thing where
The more drinking makes more feeling
Sober (though drunk test would bely).
I mean the happy thing. The thing that
Happens sometimes. The thing that makes
Us at such risk for alcoholism, (at such risk).
I guess all of this is to say that I
Like this thing and wish that it were the
Thing that always showed up when I drank.
