an icecube collapses
over jazz

    in autumn colors

    hitting my ring against
    half filled glasses

    champagne bubbles
    fizzling
    as the raspberry sinks

    the aging legend
    hits the wrong notes
    with a smile

    on the rocks -
    clear vodka, no green lime
    in his tired shaky hand

    Don Maclean's
    Vincent~
    sunflowers bloom
    the starry night~

    fallen drunk on
    the pavement,
    an acquaintance~
    i walk on~

    saturday evening~
    the pub overflows with
    sad inebriated dreams~

    avocado
    sprinkled with lime -
    a sip of white wine
