Slipping

Steady yourself from chair to chair,
touching the side-board briefly, clutch
at the table by the kitchen door.

Swing the fridge open, sway, lean in,
hook a bottle with finger and thumb,
grab a glass and opener, pour,

think: what would you rather be -
bright drunk or dullish sobersides?
This has to be bad - you know the score.
