You said it was the wagon’s fault

That it buckled beneath your weight

Wheels going wobbly hitting a stray stone

Sending you headlong into

Oceans of vodka

Clear as spring water

With more than a million

Shards of glass reflecting

What was left of you and how you

Chose the bottle instead of your children
