Rum, Poetry & The Lash

byLauren Hynde©

 

I

The poem
filters
each image
already distilled
by distance,
leaves it
clearer
although
inadequate
to the things
it tries to capture
from
the indifferent past.



II

Too bad
for things.

This
alcohol decanted
drop by drop
is drunk
and inebriates
a little
but
on the other hand
it purifies,
sharpens
the text's
lucidity,



III

returns
with more
intensity
the flames
no
but
that essence
almost vitreous
of shadow
and shine
they left
on your eyes.

Too good
for things.
