I Don'T Drink Liquor Anymore... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i've been drunk many times
not just with wine
but with power
for which when i am sober
the guilt is eating me

and so
let me be frank with you
i do not drink anymore
that hard liquor
with those highly spirited vapor

why can't we just sit and let the time drink us
we be the drinks on the vessels of our emptiness
filled by the spirits of the wines
of the moment

let these talks take us
to the surprising places of our hearts
sincere and
illuminating like the early morning sun
where we are those greenest grass
taking in more
of those chlorophyll

we shall be drunk with our poetry
and dance with the music of our sorrows
let us share all these
on our highly improved
Tu Fu.
