 “you see me gazing through the bottom of a whisky bottle . . .”  - Daniel Donner

  

What does it look like

from that perspective, lad?

Hazy on hazy, obscured

by dense glass and remnants

of a corner.

 .

If the bottle is held even,

and you are tall enough, we

can see your great left eye roving

at the lip, seeking too avidly

with a pittance of life-drowned

curiosity.

 .

Why is the bottle empty again?

Before entering the bar, the world

looked fine from this point of view.
