i lounge

read pablo by firelight

drink wine


and wait for life to wrap me up

in her ribbons, bows, patches affixed with safety pins

one pink rose on the table compliments the whiskey bottle
on its slender neck
like a kiss when work at last
an ode to today only
a humble corkscrew
me the cork
life the bottle
death the neck
love the kiss
wind the sigh
