Last night I had a nightmare
I dreamt I had blood
in my alcohol stream;
it was horribly rainbow coloured
and I was dealing with reality;
I’d shaved my beard!
I’d had a bath!
I was watching “Pop Idol”
not reading Sylvia Plath!
I was riding a white pony
and laughing, chasing fluffy bunny rabbits;
I had finally drunk myself sober,
I had finally lost
my favourite habit!
