Wine Drunk

She got in my veins
like the wine we drank,
and swirled in my head
like a dark sweet red.

We Made Vinegar with Our Grapes

September 24, 2008

we made vinegar with our grapes,
bitter and briny,
knotted our fates
tangled and viney.
but vinegar has uses too,
we can make the best of this,
they were never bad grapes,
just not as sweet as those chosen for wine.
the path we chose
was perhaps better, at least, than rotting on the vine.
