RELAPSE

A sensuous siren calls me to her rocky shore. . . .

 

The first taste of the liqueur is like going home

Bubbles with soft whispers titillate my taste

The sweet tang of the first droplet of alcohol

Reminds me at the first instance of its effect . . . .

 

I didn’t get all I wanted but got all I could stand.
