Essential Spirits

She was like Bordeaux,
a tall drink of spirit
He was more a hopped
pale lager like Pilsner, 
both gorgeous and
super gingered flavors,
although clashing mid
respective savored aplomb,
one so refined the other
rowdy after hours,
yet they complimented
each other in the way
they blended their
drunken demeanors, 
intoxicated by mere
existence of nature's
essential complexities

Excellent, excellent, and such wonderful imagery in every respect Paloma! I prefer a Bordeaux man myself :)

I agree w/Andrea. Excellent poem, Paloma. The contrasting personalities shown through metaphor is very original and compelling. Your standards remain very high, lady. No inferior quality passes through your pen. Love you always. RW

Great write Paloma, venus n' mars, one 800 degress hot, yet still retaining romantic appeal, the other cold and dry, only moisture an icy layer buried beneath dust. Yet in scheme of things, these planets meant to collide, strangely complimenting each other, though both seem totally off the vine. Reminiscent of "Barfly" movie: high class magazine woman attracted to brawling drunken poet, though he melds better with Faye Dunaway, water seeking it's own level, their common denominator, booze.DRMF

wow, I love this metaphor for two very different people. It would be hard to find such lovely imagery for me and hubbie. Surely not two peas in a pod!

"rowdy after hours" sounds familiar. A really fun read, Paloma:)

Intoxicating, Paloma, like the beauty that flows from your pen...I want another drink.

They sound perfect together, opposites attract they say. I'm a beer guy and like Victor below, my stomach has paid the price, though I'm not ready to give it up just yet. But, I'll never turn down a nice, smooth, wonderful glass or two of an amazing vintage either. :) Loved this one Paloma. You talent is the perfect vintage for me.
