Night Cap

Night Cap

The night is intoxicating

Inhaling deeply 

To scent its flavour

I tilt my head back

To drink in the stars

Black sky mixed 

With shots of light

A potent cocktail 

Of stirred memories 

I hold the glass darkly

Swirl the night 

On my tongue

Swallow all my words 

And forget the rest
