In The Mix

I’ll try not to drink
“too much vodka,”
but I know he’ll
“pour me another one,”
just to see how much
vodka and me, we don’t
get a long.

Better to mix me an
Old Fashioned,
and watch while I
eat the cherries
while you
“put on an old song,
won’t you?”

Something slow and
nostalgic, or
better yet, “romantic,”
is this crushing effect
you have on me,
in the mix
of vinyl, bourbon,
and a cherry tree I once loved.

    Ooooh. I like this one. I’ve been watching “Justified” based on an Elmore Leonard story (on Amazon Prime, if interested), and sipping a little adult beverage. This piece has the same kind of feeling as the writing on that show, and my head after some encouragement. :-) Good work, and I hope everything is going well.
