Punishment: Wine drinking “101”

Gluten for punishment, nerves, uncertainty
I consider wine today, everyday.

Sensory soaked sips
Overtake tedium with
Joyous reinvention
Complex possibility
Blood red promise
Deep in coming.

Unfolding mahogany secretaries
Oaked cherry tones with
Exotic spices pole vault up and over
Fruit forward sinus salutations.

Bills, bills, bills
Sheets to change, weeds to pull
Meals to spoon together
Folding, sweeping
Year after year.

Caked careers, marriage
Distilled pickled jars, oblong, lidded.
Life’s dull persistence aches.
I’m still here.

Sunsets greet evening candlelight.
Finally time to bring down shiny bulbous glasses
Rounded and jubilant
From clear shelving to
Celebrate life’s infinite elixir.
