Eureka

It’s hard to capture
lightning
in a bottle
when you’re constantly
tipping it back
washing it down
pissing it out

you think you’re a genius
in this very moment

but you wake up
just the same as the rest of us

with a sore back
& drool on your pillow
and, if you’re lucky, you
remember how you got here
if not, maybe you’re missing
huge chunks of a eureka moment
or just another embarrassing Thursday night
