pohm about wine

we drank cheap wine in glorified swallows...

like the grape rinds still covered the bottoms of our feet
like seeds caught in between the middle toes that nobody ever notices.

lost for a moment and then caught again in shower drains that nobody ever notices

the water relearning the shape of 20 toes while
the drunk touch wrinkled fingers in the 20 minute half-life of hot water
in low-income housing.

as the water goes cold
we drink warm wine
and it spills everywhere.
