enough of me by J.J. Campbell

one of these nights
where i am bound
and determined to
drink myself to 

five drinks in and
i want my legs to 
feel twenty years 

ten more drinks 
in and my hands, 
long grown tired 
of my bullshit, 
become two beautiful 
women who can’t 
get enough of me

twenty more drinks
and those beautiful
women go get the
shotgun in the corner
and gently place it
into my mouth

i offer the entire 
room shots for free 
for someone to pull
the trigger

and at the end of 
the night i go seek
out dylan thomas 
so we can compare
