The Grape Smashers


We distill grapes

On bedroom windows

And drink a gallon

Of despair-



There in the beak

Of loneliness



At the peak

Of poverty


Yes, you and I

The grape smashers:


Across a city


You in your hi-rise

And me on the street-

Shaking our bottles


At invisible windows


Lest we should ever meet.
