Like Black Jelly Beans

Posted to Poetry

Warm air surrounds me
Although it's icy outside
I think of the Aegean
And the night we danced
Like Americans
On a boatful of Greeks.
I can taste the ice and Ouzo
The flavor coating my tongue
Made my jaw clench
We laughed
An aphrodisiac for pain
So I drank three.
