GIVE ME BOOZE OR GIVE ME JESUS, Michael Lee Johnson

Give Me Booze or Give Me Jesus
by Michael Lee Johnson

Give me booze or give me Jesus.
If we listened to the bottom of the vodka bottle,
or finished the last chapter book of Revelation,
the spirits toss in the cards, the chips—
pray for this gambler.
Listen to summer sun, birds that chirp,
these are the beginnings and where it ends.
Maya calendar.
