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

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.

I can't think of a poem
to write about drink
but when I get hoem
I'll have a little think ...

While holed up at hoem,
Your thoughts to collect,
My sagest advice
Is "Only connect"
