As We Head Towards Dusk (Resurrection Refrain)

I could have a glass of champagne
But the bubbles would go to my head
I’d be squiffy, confused
Somewhat easily bruised
Falling into your arms
Dancing into your bed
Tripping and
Tumbling
Temperance used.
I could have a glass of champagne
And the bubbles would go to my head
I should have a glass of champagne
But you offer me cocoa instead.

  1. Ha ha, yes, I guess cola comes somewhere between the two and I vaguely remember the talk about compromise… but I suspect it may have been late at the end of a liquid night and, um, I can't recall your reply.What was it?

  2. Thanks, dannym. You're close with high life/mundane – risk vs safety was the underlying intent… though primarily was just aiming for a darkly witty ditty!

  3. i love this poem. i'd like to interpret thispoem as a romantic and funny episode in thepoet's life — when plans go awry — and thepoet could not help it but just say "tsk, tsk."
