A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Introduction

 

 

it was the wine

talking her off her stool

and into the bed

where we sipped kisses

our bodies drank from the same glass

 

the bar closed at dawn

shut down our promises

the sun called us liars

and we presumed to have met

once

vaguely

remembering

if we had a conversation.

The Cork in the Bottle popped... the Jazz played on.
The Bar stools were UFO's that dropped through the Sky Lights
into the Night. A one night flight. Your poem makes me tipsy.

A meeting that seems to good to be true is one that makes you question whether or not an event actually took place, as your poem does.

Oh my! So true to life a picture! A fleeting encounter, a furtive tryst in the dark hours. What occurred was so intoxicating and yet so brief! The pleasure of the sip limited to the physical. After all the bar works only for limited hours!
This is just so beautifully written, Jacob!

This has to be a one night stand J. Drink fuelled passion, followed by the cold light of day, when there is little left to say. I felt the awkwardness here. So very well composed.

Sounds like a drunken one night stand fuelled by passion where any pause would cause an avalanche of an ending.
