drink now

Robert Frank 'Silence'

I drink
for the moment and
memories–and bid farewell
to my youth

I drink for who I am
and to whom I will never become

I drink for power and passion
and celebrate failure and success

I drink to salute those yearning,
the neglected, and to appeal
to the hopeful and the disappointed

I drink to life and living
and to those of whom
are mournful

I drink, to bitter thoughts
while the drink remains the
sweetest of all I regress and digress

I drink now
to resolve bitterness
into isolation and echoes
