    if i could drink this poem
    i would
    feel the blue tingle course along
    my bloodstream in the skin
    stretched over my arms and fingers
    and legs and feet and
    down my torso
    if i could drink this poem
    i would be cooled from the heat
    and warmed from the cold
    cleansed from all impure infirmities
    that have attacked my body my soul
    i would be able to breathe fresh air
    from God's first creation
    i would be able to see all that is in
    front of me and behind me and beside
    all at the same time
    if i could drink this poem
    if i could drink it
    if i could drink this poem
    i would
    intoxicatedly seduce you with my smile
    pull you inside my gaze to make you mine
    if i could drink this poem
    i would
    but it is bitter.
