LOVE IS A BOTTLE

the flat hum
of nothing
he promised --
days strung
together
bottle to bottle
'til ain't nobody
going to hire the girl
but christ knows
she's got to have
some pleasure, too
 
him gone,
goddamn loser
and fuckin' kids
want
want
want
and need this
and that
so keep the tipple hid
and nip it  
warm and sweet
as baby's kisses,
the day's edge
smooth
as brown glass
