cheers.

I had my first drink
a few days back 

a pint of beer
on the first day
white rum and vodka
on the next

beer tasted like seawater
and alcohol
like that cough syrup I hate

people have different reasons for drinking
to celebrate happiness
to wash down sadness
this and that
the thing is
I never really cared

feeling the liquid
burn my throat
I wondered
what was mine?

belching (or was it a fart?)
I heard myself mutter

“Bukowski”
