2 Parts Water

2 Parts Water

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

love poem I guess

"
The mad scientist of the heart
dabbed compounds rare
two parts water to zest behind her ear and Chantilly over skin so bare.
Sipping a magical elixir,
a deep red Malbec.
Setting the speculation to
Bille Holiday and "la flamme".
Yes, this will need a series of tests.

Any mention of Billie Holiday is good. Is this about someone drinking alone and that initial loveliness before it turns? Like Billie somewhat.. the greatest and most tender voice of all, but the heartache behind it mon dieu...

Maybe so :)
As I sip my last taste of my morning brew and taste the perfection of a well aged red wine to your love potion in poetic form. you stir a memory of my childhood when billy holiday performed on a barge on the Allegheny river at the point here in Pittsburgh. Her voice traveled across the water and echoed A spectral spectrum of color and tone that I can still hear in my memories ear. Well test one... bunny + result :)

Not sure I catch all the all the allusions in this potent little piece, but Billie Holiday strikes a strong tone.
Also, I recall mixing up many an "elixir"; hoping it would be repeatedly tested.
Sweet, succinct and impactful, Cherrie!

Ha! Your "mental images" are big productions!
The mention of Billie Holiday took this to another realm for me. I have to agree with Jacob. Some music begs to be heard, again and again and again. This is dynamic, Cherrie...in so many ways!

Good Day,

Ah . . . poetry and jazz! They do go together. In fact as I go over various poems in this site I have jazz playing over YouTube. Don't do alcohol anymore, so have to leave that out. No pun intended, but there's a nice"mix" in the poem!.
