Pulling Teeth: Shadorma

PULLING TEETH

Tried to have
A conversation
Harvested
Sweet zero
Not hard to see how she drove
Her partner to drink

Blame The Wine: Double Shadorma

BLAME THE WINE

He’s sorry
She ever approached
him … But then
So is she
Nothing left but to withdraw
With eyes averted

After all
Martial arts training
Lesson one
How to fall
Safely without injury
So glad he learnt that

Without Bars: Four By Six

WITHOUT BARS

Prefers to drink at home
The alcohol’s cheaper
And being by yourself
The company’s better

Still … For Now: Four By Six

STILL … FOR NOW

The vodka is still bubbling
With a stir from time to time
Gradual fermentation
Then one day soon … Fireworks!

Gin In The Afternoon

GIN IN THE AFTERNOON

Two’s company
Three’s a ménage

Disarmed

DISARMED

Show me what you’re made of
When you’re out of uniform

Option

OPTION

Sometimes
I feel
as though

we should
drink together
till they disappear

(and you know the barriers
I’m referring to
here)

dissolve into the mist
of whateverness,
leaving us

to wake up
next day,
wondering:

“What happens now?”
And BTW
What are you doing Friday?

Black Sheep

BLACK SHEEP

The pit yawns, but then
so do you, after a night
wildly carousing.

A Tipsy Mixer

A TIPSY MIXER

A little of this
A little of that
The tip of a tipple
And a tip of the hat

A Cruel Mistress

A CRUEL MISTRESS

Top of the charts, teenage guitar hero
All those girls down on their knees

Fast forward thirty years
Nothing to see here

Just another clapped out muso
Comes awake mid afternoon

A sobering thought
Sends a shiver

Sends him scuttling
For a hair of the dog

A glass or three
Of Old Paint Stripper

Down at the Rickety Crotchet
Where the mandatory optimism prevails
