have a drink on me

the wine allowed some feelings

and some feelings had more feelings

come to the top

out from the lips

onto the ears of those who would later say

“strange fish”

But then

when I thought about it

and even you may have agreed

So many lonely people there

so many women

and also so many men

after a few drinks they’d go swim naked

to show us

their bodies


but what they wanted from me, you, and themselves

is the unattainable
