Juke Joint Love

whiskey

Pour on me
like Memphis blues.
Smoky, gravelly
and intense

Like a smooth
shot of tequila;
electrifying me from
roots to toes.

You don’t know
how tightly I
clench onto the
beauty of you.
Like the freedom
of a child’s imagination
married with the verbosity
of a dictionary.

You erupt from me
fully formed
not like the goddess
Diana/Athena
but words
imagery, metaphorical lyrical
You.
