80 proof paragraphs

How deep and mellow
one minute reading a book
next thing you know
you’re elbow deep
soaking wet
stone cold sober

Spirits in books
and other voices
pulling us into the æther
knee deep and listening
seeking out the
loud drunk in all of us

Afterward, sated
and intoxicated
with camaraderie
we lay across one another
like children
come in from play

  1. I’m homebound today with wintry weather, so I’m reading blogs and books while enjoying a good cup of coffee and German almond cookies. This poem is my reality today, and it’s wonderful 🙂
