Days of Wine
Poem for Day 237 – 20150825

We toasted to health
and what could have been.
Mutual desires
shared by red wine.

Cheese was the horderve,
a poor substitute
for the preferred course
we could not indulge.

We clinked glasses,
held at arms length.
Public toasts given,
others unspoken.

Days of wine were ours,
chaste celebration
embraced in place of
nights of wine postponed.
