An apéritif…to stimulate
an appetite for fire.
Psychoactive ethanol will
take you even higher.

Rectified spirit with purity
beyond the clearest sky.
100 proof. Soaring so loud
on a Dulce Vida high.

Fahrenheit..the flames are
high. Taste a spirit on my lips.
Tequila tang on borrowed dreams.
Spilled liquor on my hips.

Paracelsus had it straight when
he named his poison right.
The finest lick of salted sweets.
Touch my skin and hold on tight.
