PASS THE BOTTLE (August Postcard Poem 2017)

He takes great pains

to salvage drops out of

each exquisite moment,

distills the essence of his life

into a signature blend.


He tucks it in

a mahogany box

sealed with memories

and hot wax,

to be opened up and savored

when the shout comes

“last call.”
