Unleash yourself on drunkenness —
let yourself be free and dance,
grow wings or hail the dark side of the moon.
Be drunk with swagger of the new found confidence
you find in mountain air or blues.
Unwind the ropes that tether you —
let flames ignite, be loose and swallow sun,
gown yourself in kelp and ride the surfs with whales.
Be drunk with everything and nothing that
you catch from fountains and in songs.
Undress your shackles, climb the trees —
let meadows in and waltz your hair,
grow sails and gondola or praise a blackbird’s song.
Be drunk on borrowed brightness that
you rainbow on a beam of joy.
Today we get drunk with Paul at dVerse. Join us at the bar with poetry on any topic relating to drunkenness.
