Habits

I'm jealous of dogs and their ability
To form habits; they know
Just when it's time to eat, to sleep,
To shit, to go for a walk.
They are eager for these daily landmarks.
Me, the only habit I have ever succeeded at
Is drinking, and I've quit that.
I do not exercise, I do not meditate,
I do not clean the house or shave,
I do not review the paperwork
In a timely fashion.
Only drinking, and I've quit that.
Drinking, and being alive.
Those are my only habits,
And I am not a dog; I am no good at habits.
