Alcoholic 

My mothers addiction 

Dulled her to the world 

She was always watching 

With bored eyes 

Twirling her hair 

Head cocked to one side 

Indifferent 

I could have died right there 

And those eyes of hers 

Wouldn’t have cared 

She just sat 

Watching 

But never really seeing 

A damn thing
