I am Shamed. I am Drunk.


Like a shadow birthed
From dawn-light's approach.
I hide between the pink and red
Of pollution's grandeur.
And listen to the morning birds sing.

Ambiance to my lips stretching
Grand as Dali's face.

What is a muse?

When she hides sunlight
In blonde temptation.

Falsifying complication
To a pucker
And plump.

Along the river
Lilacs bloom,
But what value does a miracle have
That happens ever year?

I still stutter language
Like a drunk's footsteps.

Asking:
"What is sobriety? "

Ahhh
Such a gift to make a poet dumbfounded.

I had to be in-intoxicated
To put this sensation into verse.
