I glanced drunkenly into the near-empty bottle.
In the viscous alcohol I saw
rippled and twisted
like a garish Mr. Hyde.
I laughed at the carnival mirror,
so accurately reflecting
of my, oh, so petulant features.
Every flaw and misconception
brought to life in
at the bottom of a pit,
too deep to reach.
I cast the bottle aside and hailed for another,
in the hopes that I
far, far better.
