another sunset
another gnat
swims in the wine

    We both need to take more care of our wine!

    spooned from rioja
    the winefly stumbles
    over damp assam teabags

    Drowning gnat
    Disturbs your crimson wine
    And the setting sun

    Mozart opera
    a wave through the legs of a millipede

    Three cheers for the six-legged!

    I had to smile, imagining a tipsy gnat, doing the backstroke in your glass, sighing with pleasure at the sunset you are both watching!

    midge haze –
