perhaps its a wake for the dead, anzac day... when you discover something you don't want to know


And then something happens

or does it?

That delicious taste of anticipation

swirls around in the glass before you

and if you dare take a sip

you will have knowledge or...


But if you sit watching it

you won't know,

so neither will you be

rewarded, nor let down.

The smoky, bitter scent

tries to overcome you

with a wanting of pleasure,

but deep in that glass

a whole other world sleeps,

waiting to be awoken.

The crystal glass

as round as your eyes

blurs behind a screen

of wishes, wants and forgotten sensations

but if you drink to this sort of ceremony

what will be left?
