Elixir of intoxication

To imbibe without thought

Raise the drink to wet lips

Caressing the edge of the glass

With depravity on the mind

No hope for solace in this intoxication

But perhaps a glimpse of that

Which cannot be seen with

The sober eye

And the pleasures that are sought

When contemplation reveals

That which is most fervently wished for

Is not something easily attained

This rapturous state has brought


Nothing but imagined completion

And wanton speculation
