New Poem: “solace”

it’s hard to lose weight when the urge to drink
strikes me at inopportune times –
like in the middle of a lecture
or in the middle of the night –

i lay awake and wonder and think
and question how to best spend my time –
and somehow the older i get
the solace of wine seems more and more like an answer –
