July Poem 28: A Twist on the Dark and Stormy

Start with pure agave Tequila and

Its hint of pepper. Mix it with the warm

Bite of ginger beer poured over ice in

A tall glass. Garnish the rim with a lime

Wedge. Squeeze the lime into the drink and drop

In the husk. Take a sip. The fizz tickles

Your nose as you stifle a sneeze each time

You refill your glass. You would think you would

Learn. Each time your drink is more Tequila

Less ginger beer. And you are drinking this

Because you are too drunk to keep making

That gourmet margarita recipe

You ripped off from the Food Network website.

And you thought your fiends wouldn’t find you out.
