Drink(er)

22 May 2021 Saturday Poetry Prompt: infatuation

When I was a kid it was always a bit of a problem —
my mom was always a little bit suspicious of it —
from the zero effort it took for me to down an oz
of the worst tasting cough medicine
to the uncontrollable nature of chugging
a gallon of orange juice in a day —
maybe I had sort of a problem all along —
I love(d) to drink.
