A Bottle of Whiskey

Whiskey is my best colour.

The bright eye in the glass

sucks on grief;

still Manhattan lights   

ring the  bay below.

Stomach the needle.

The yellow meter falls;

conversation curves with the bottle

and I fly, birdless wing.

At half past three

the genie is corpsed on the table.
