Tell Me Whiskey Works Better

we should have stolen a car
to feel the thrill of taking something
that wasn’t ours,
tell me whiskey works better
to heal my aching head,
and to blur the lines on the road
enough to pretend
the fading lights aren’t leading us
to the lives we’ve ruined;
tell me whiskey will work better
to find the house on the road
i don’t remember how to get to. 
tell me whiskey works better
and will burn my throat
so i can’t sing.
