One Poem By Moses Victor Jassa ￼
“Struggle from the Wag” by Moses Victor Jassa examines alcoholism. The poet paints a vivid picture of a liquor addict with related imagery and beautiful metaphors. I am delighted to share this piece with you.
Kwaghkule, Jacob – Contributing Editor (Poetry)
Struggle from the Wag
I can see myself
Going down the valley of thoughts
Of simplicity within
Like the little peck of the naked vulture
Which flies above the sky of divinity
Sold into slavery
A memorial, long time lost
I have the orientation of a toggle stitches
Layed down beside my bare minimum of consideration
Vallies talked to each other while
I lay in thrift tension
This circle within
That plays my head
A gunshot of prediction
A hope vanquished
Lost in the hands of lame dibbles
A calm touch from a voracious tame
Shook my hand with a sweet acid
A tasty drink that left me wanting
Sold into bottles for liquor license
An obedient servant to brands of liquor
Slimming down the appetite of a sourly tasty throat
Scavenging to defeat this drowsiness
But left to defend this ugly thing with pride
Battling with the defense of being free
Free from alcoholism
Since none knows
Of my dating with secret loneliness
I kept it for when my creative maker will atone
But am I vanquished?
