Treasure Island

Nicholas Peter


Nectar


The nectar of temptation,
Dionysus' own little medicine,
soother of the tongue.

Let yourself fall slack,
underneath a golden rain,
of bitter taste and quick absolution.

It'll help the anger,
though you might have trouble speaking,
and everything else.

Even you walk,
and your talk,
will be affected.

But hey,
it's grand,
and I could drink a bottle a day,
couldn't you?

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
