“whiskey breath”

“whiskey breath”

i remember
body parts
skin, stubbly
rough, never soft
sweat
always there
a slip unkind
my fingertips could never quite

grab on

i remember
stomach, stretched
round, pulsing
smell of beer
steak
cologne I loved
faded
bitter
never seemed to

hang on

to these
pressed lips
sloppy mouths
vodka, whiskey
smell of rum
the only way
to feel you

i remember

i felt us shift
months of slipping
we fell and flew
together
asleep
the entire time
we never did

grab on.

  1. Hi, Tiffany. My name is Jose I am a graduate student at a California public university. I am reaching out to you because quite honestly, from one student to another, I need your advice regarding possible discrimination against me from faculty. Please, at your earliest convenience, reach out as I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

    Best,

    Jose
