Thankfully for those of us stuck in faculty meetings, water and vodka look alike.

That's really what we need: a like of alcoholic beverages that are marketed to professionals who want to drink at work.  The three martini lunch used to be respectable and if Mad Men is accurate, they started pouring booze at 10 am.  Both are frowned upon today but the need still remains.  Somebody could make a fortune.

bad thursday haiku


I.

the flakes have returned.
winter, no coincidence,
has as well. vodka.


III.

vodka, my old friend --
relief from piles that summon
the reddest of pens.


IV.

penned, grieving, my soul
craves escape, my body trapped:
faculty meeting.
