Celebrating a Year

week 346 ~ whether it’s love on the rocks or straight up

me.346whether it’s love on the rocks or straight up
whatever this cocktail is good for me
shaken with ice or served neat I bet we
could even survive the blender a cup
mixed with bitters from another era
gin fizz sidecar martini manhattan
we exhale their evocative names then
pause to marvel as every breath we draw
thaws the road ahead hopes extrapolate
from actions if we’re lucky one day we’ll
look back at us safe warm and laughing still
to toast the bravery it took to create
this portrait of the inside of a heart
drinking in our intoxicating start
