Restraint - Poem by Melanie Emikohe

He is all about subtleties -
Half smiles, off-whites on cinco de mayo;
He gets around with restraint,
A sneaky shadow in a crowd!

Then he retires to a rocking chair
Pondering about today, old affairs,
They are vivid like scarlet on sand,
Then another shot of Sunset Rum!

    nicely penned -

    They are vivid like scarlet on sand,
    Then another shot of Sunset Rum!

    ....

    pointless breath or the breath
    into thyself the earth is rounding
    one sip of RUM or lovelorn mourn! ! !
