by Margaret Rucker

Floating in a cocktail glass-
Waves lap softly, thickly,
And trickle through my hair,
Bronzing its duskiness.

I wonder why
I never brush against
The crystal walls,
Nor clip off flakes of glass
To sparkle through the gold.

Perhaps now I will drown.
It would be nice to die
Sinking lazily deeper down
Into this dreamy sea
Of golden wine
