Kryptonite

You were drunk again last night
but you thought I wouldn’t know
like your superpower
is to disguise intoxication.
You’re no superhero
but there is a villain here.
Will you ever realize
your kryptonite
is the exact thing
you think will save you?
Maybe you should use your cape
to clean up the mess
you leave in your wake.
