Inebriate Night

Updated on July 4, 2017

Lusty glasses click

and couple on the laughing balcony.

The lights are what I desire

As the birds, without effort,

walk on water.


Reason arrives,

I sip steamed beer

and dance in mirrored

empty room

embrace myself in dim hallways

seeking those

sweet spirits

I have read of.


Yet, why not forget

these visions -

the drunks on that parapet

their cups full of vinegar

stained with dark kisses.


There is the embrace of he grass

by the roadside where I rest my head sometimes


as the young woman,

places the amulets of her suitor

under her fragrant pillow

once again offers her love

to the peaceable night.

      Wow, this is as rich, as it is deep. Elegant are your words. "Birds walk on water"... such peaceful imagery. I highly value this type of romantic poetry.
