EVERYWHEN COCKTAIL (August Postcard Poem 2017)


1/4 tsp. – singed ashes from a comet’s tail

1 oz. – powdered ink from an octopus’ diary

1 pinch – quarter notes (evaporated) from a Magyar love ballad

1/2 cup – distilled vapors of cactus tears


After bathing the above in the whispers of lovers, add the following:


1 jigger – Moravian monk pure bourbon

2 oz. – Creme de Nova, fifty proof


Place all of the above in a blender until a halo appears.

Pour slowly over two cubes of ice stolen from the soul of a newly-calved glacier.


Best served under the light of a waning moon.
