At The Bottom Of The Bottle

He turned vodka shots into binoculars,

drawing chardonnay mountains from bottles

and rum seas across napkins

with whisky paths half hidden

behind liquor boats

bobbing along like corks

while their captains sang shanties

and their crews threw out sails,

white, crisp and smelling of salt


and tequila.
