You gave me Whiskey Fever
and cared for me at leisure
I take a sip,
and toast to the ghost
of our relationship
The bourbon is savored
on my tongue,

but your memory bites
as I swallow
then cough up a lung. 
I drink it down, 
because your love isn’t found
Your absence is what
causes
silence to be so loud.
