Whiskey in the morning

At once cool and burning
harsh as flame made liquid
smelling, tasting
of vanilla and caramel

numbs the lips and tongue
setting the belly ablaze,
the numbness spreads
to tingle the fingers and cheeks

the mind succumbs quickly.
clarity is gone, apathy reigns
nothing has been righted.
Coffee is the better friend
