Long-dead rebel personalities

Whiskey Cellar


    Salvaging old
spirits whiskey cellar.

square nails.

Rusty spikes
to hold


Searching for

They're just

you just have
to change
to see them.

This particular
whiskey cellar
was a
meeting place

for old-day
quarry workers,
bachelor miners,
and a lair
for lusty

The rake makes
these salvage

Black widows
are something
better dealt
with at
rake's length.

Carefully pulling
out the precious
square heads with
the nail claw,

them in a
nail keg,

speak of
boom times

and slack
to those
happy to
come here,

whiskey cellar,

to escape the
hornet's nest
of public opinion

and gossip
they had
in town

well into
the wee hours.

Whiskey is history,
History is whiskey.

"Whiskey is history,
History is whiskey."

There is a lot in this poem, Sage. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace.

"Whiskey is history,
History is whiskey"...that antimetabole is hardhitting. If you replace "whiskey" with "cocktail" in the last line, it MAY have a greater punch. A lesson learnt in this post, good penmanship Poet Sage Sweetwater.
