Artemisia

absinthe…
not absent this proof
the ascend of spirits grande
fairies greene as flowers bland
pour from a bottle 
three in hand

“goddess of the hunt” 
a drink most beautiful

origins Callisto
of generations purposeful
a papyrus recorded 
medicinal
and magical 
a cold mix of elixir
in measured vapors…

delicious escapes
as the favored
Demeter
do you agree… 
of my muse
news better 
of the bitters used
or do you resist 
in the kiss of Mead

indeed
the nature of things
in a pleasurable state
for material brings
of the being fortuna
a corona by name
in a date of Chance

and it was there
hear
where they danced
