What’s all this life about

Is it
sitting at home after work &
writing poems about pain &
introspection & other lovely
stuff & getting depressed
about them ending up
in sordid computer files

Or spreading out
into the bars with my newly
acquired friends, feeling
comfortable, talking about
this & that & getting pissed
in a far from poetic, quite
normal manner

– James Steerforth ( © 2008 )

Has some autobiographical introspection in it and is a totally optional contribution to Totally Optional Prompts, not meeting the criteria for the current Edgar Allen Poe topic (even though I seem to recall that he was quite familiar with getting pissed, or was it only getting high?), but perhaps offering one approach to the coming one-way prompt.
