He leans his elbows on the smooth mahogany of the bar. Hat tipped low over his eyes, one heeled cowboy boot resting on the foot bar; staring at the shot glass. He reaches out a finger and touches the edge, pushing it away a little, trying to do physically what he can't do with his mind. He knows he shouldn't put that shot glass to his lips; knows he's going to anyway. Life's like that, one shot glass away from a bad decision. He picks it up, gazes upon it's liquid gold fire and tosses it back. It burns so good. Burning away life just a little bit, forgetting just a little bit. He rolls the shot glass between his figures, feeling it's empty coldness. Looks at the bar tender and nods his head for another. Just one more fire.
