Numb My Night

by Nicole D Gregory

I go in for my poison
A version of chemo
to rid me of this
cancer

Walking in slowly
deliberately
so as not to be noticed
ready to take
prisoners
Mixing in with the
dark shadows
but piercing the
Quiet
with my eyes

Numb My Night
Tell me your name
Gin, Vodka, Tequila
I won't remember
Someone else has
me shake'n
Let's see if you're smart
enough to stir me up
or
Numb My Night

Follow the practice of
the thin man's viral videos
Maybe I'll play dumb
to your learned swag

Alpha female
I'll draw the curtains
on my bright comebacks
...for tonight

All I'm asking is you
to doctor me up
with words mixed into
your liquid courage
and if you don't care
neither do I
being ignored
has gotten me far
and I'll feign interest
for a warm embrace
Skin to Hyde
you're no different than
the rest of the dogs

Numb My Night
Tell me your name
Gin, Vodka, Tequila
I won't remember
Someone else has
me shake'n
Let's see if you're smart
enough to stir me up
or
Numb My Night
