We drink

For today’s prompt, write a We Blank poem.

We drink

When we’re not inspired
because the pinot noir
is also blocked

We light a candle
the three of us
for atmosphere

The flame flickers
but doesn’t have a clue
either so we look

From poet to wine
wine to fire
fire back to poet

Some nights the moon
is hidden by clouds

    I adore your concluding lines Bart … this poet was there last night ..
    “From poet to wine
    wine to fire
    fire back to poet

    Some nights the moon
    is hidden by clouds”
