The neck, long and lean, feels
Fizzing, fuzzing emotions
Ready to pop
And spew and sizzle and swim
Soaking the skin, sticky

Someone lost the lid
A long time ago

Once the liquid spills out 
The empty hallow
Transforms into a transport vessel
For a message
Of hope, love, longing
Or of rescue, release

On the top shelf
She keeps her collection
Of colored glass
Gathering dust
Shaped like violins or hour glasses
Did they hold whiskey or rum?

She bites her lip
Until she bleeds

But she never cries

I do

Poete maudit 
accursed Poet

    "On the top shelf/ She keeps her collection/ Of colored glass/ Gathering dust/ Shaped like violins or hour glasses/ Did they hold whiskey or rum?"...superb stanza! Keep sharing your talent and intelligence. Wonderful job, my friend. Ruben.
