vodka fuelled late evenings at the bar
on occasion, voices battling
to maim and subjugate.
a violent purging
the ritualistic denuding of the other's ego.
a loving touch restores faith.
hope is perdurable.
incarcerated by dependency.
characters in the play are set at - I do.
the credits roll,
endurance to the finish
is worthy of applause and envy.
