Biblical tales
in mind
Samson
and Delilah
Honey from
the strong
Thorns from
lion’s paws
Heat
from
frozen
cold

Warming
all the way
down
Slick
burning
Effervescent
buzzing
Cauterized
Imbibing
one
more
shot

Frozen
Heated
Dreaming
volcanic
of heroes
and villainous
temptations
This
bottle in
hand
and ideas
running
plentiful
through
cavernous
echo-chambers

Drink
be merry
Drink
be well
Drink
until tomorrow
when waking
will remind me
why I
once said
“never again”
