Blood Orange Champagne - Poem by Benjamin Michael Clark

Blood orange champagne
Too far gone
You look at your drink
Then back at me

I'm naked now
Rope around my neck
Hangin' like Mussolini
But I couldn't be perfect

You're fed up
Enough is enough
You spill your drink
On my white kashmir sweater

I bite my lip
You throw a fit
I walk out without
A word

The moon is full
The street is icy
Slippery soles
On my shoes - tough love

    Troubles flow in painful tension, succinct pensive language, like many questions that may remain unanswered. Great passion and mood in this restrained piece. (Report) Reply
