New Year's Eve 2

entry picture

The Champagne
has left our heads swimming,
feeling idiotic and in love
as two young lovers
skinny-dipping at midnight,
readying to leap into the darkness
of another year 
with only the compass
of our foolish passion 
to guide us.


I have drunk so much the dead are 
coming back to me,
the ones we crossed arms
and promised not to forget,
ferrying back across
the dark waters of memory,
to where I stand on
the shores of this New Year
holding up a flickering torch
of remembrance.

This is just right Tom. The headiness of the occasion and the drink are a perfect concoction for the poet's mind in full swing. I've been offline for a long time, so I may have missed some of your stuff. So here's too you !
