wino’s epitaph

wino's epitaph poem by steven james humphreys

Oh, glorious bottle

fill my glass with your pleasure

for you are my God of Gods

I cry out to you

this sweetest seduction

in your favor

a much sacred swill

and eternal essence

slowly I drown in spirit

this holiest of drunkenness

this wino’s epitaph

a humblest of souls

for your taking

to where it is

you will.
