drink

Post by I.D.10-t »

my sleeve tries to hold my arm
I drink what is in the glass
no I don't
I feel the fabric move over my elbow
I stop
I look at my hand

I come to Chiff and Fipple
I am awash with ennui
Then:
A poem
O dear, someone is drunk

Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Why do we call these ardent potions
"Spirits"
?
Because they cannot speak
Until we let them in,
And then:
Man, that sucka was just dyin' to say something,
Anything. It wants to be heard
, if only by itself.
So.
Spirits.

Tell us something.: I'm a fiddler and, latterly, a fluter. I love the flute. I wish I'd always played it. I love the whistle as well. I'm blessed in having really lovely instruments for all of my musical interests.
