Drinking


drinking in a golden cup
licking the brim
Oh! licking the brim

deeper ~watering my lips~
round drops, translucent
~wanting and waiting~

i swallow the flesh
soaked in wine
dressed in purple

searching for a touch
in a golden cup
remembering that i dissolve
in my purple color

    Used symbol is uncommon
    but should be prized
    for its significance
    And aptness of the context
    for the the title as well as content (Report) Reply
