the answer’s not at the bottom of the bottle (2005)

 

the answer’s not at the bottom of the bottle

nor the bottom of the blue solo cup

nor in the gallons of cognac

or vodka

or lemonade

or other juices that splash down your throat

in an effort to change your mindstate

from loneliness and despair

to one of optimism

and hope

hope

the reason for religion

but my religion comes in glass bottles

of various shapes and sizes

colors

textures

varieties

costs

though in the end

its all rather expensive

and could have been used better

than momentary pleasure
