SPRITE

Dutifully imbibing my healing poison of choice.
Waiting for the Fairy to give the poet in me voice.
She gently speaks to me with words well chosen and few.
I take her in but little for our magic to renew.

Anger fell under her spell as envy she removed.
I take small bits of her therefore gluttony is disproved.
Ersatz pride set aside with sloth via writing healed,
And due to friendly companionship lechery’s fate is sealed.
With my mood thus subdued avarice meets chagrin.
We defeat the deadly sins by committing further sin.

My mind open to the brownie’s lessons I now learn.
She leaves in place my troubles while removing my concern.
My mind set at ease, but not in a mystic haze.
The herbal pixie’s to take my body in our next phase.

Bodily luxury another of her amenities.
Gentle caresses flow up my limp extremities.
Waves that breach and softly reach deep into my core.
She thus dually strokes me to relax and restore.
Thoughts not confined or entwined with any undertow.
I mind my measurements for the sake of my ego.

Being human I have been given to excess.
Allowing in too much of my Green Fairy princess.
Then I melt and watch as powerless fan blades spin,
And ride into unconsciousness on an anisette grin.


I just like sharing my poems with people who have an interest in the subject matter. I hope it cuts the mustard. If not trash it. Thanks for the opportunity to share it.

Very nice.

Particularly after reading the thread title, and expecting to hear about yet another absinthe mixer. :laugh: :cheers:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you guys enjoyed the read. The second stanza of this poem is my favorite thing I've written thus far. Knowing it's well received by anyone else means a lot. It pushes me forward with the book I'm writing. Thanks again.

Now, if that was in the form of a stanza, would it change the ascetic or meaning?
Some tastes grow from desire, some from disrepute and some still from boredom, ad infinitum.
