Bring More Wine! (Conachlonn)

Time makes worlds interweave,

even intertwine.

Wine and pot,

not overdone;

one bottle and a joint.

Pointless to smoke two,

too hard to recall

all the new words,

birds that fly

higher than thought,

caught when my mind

finds where they live -

liver be damned! Bring more wine.
