It doesn’t hurt

It doesn’t hurt

to think more

positive,

unless you are

unwilling to live

a life full

of self-deception

and

lies…

on the other hand;

it only tends

to make matters

worse

wearing

those

dark blue sunglasses

of yours

that always

bring you down.

In the meantime,

though,

before you

choose looking

at the world through

those

queer

rose-colored glasses

and wake up

(again)

in the

wrong side of town

with grey, white and

blackened memories

of the night before

you wished you’d never had:

open a bottle of wine

and think about it

for

a while…

pour the deep red

elixir down

into the

long tall

stemmed

glass

and watch

it swirl.

Most importantly,

give thanks

to god above

mere

fermented

grape

juice

is

so

darned
