drink up

Day 18 Prompt: “Use Skeltonic verse.”

ten ’til the end of another day
time to write it all away
to keep the nightmares at bay
in hopes that only dreams will stay
between the pillows and the sheets
between the sidewalks and the streets
where doubt and desire eats
poetry’s steady beats
lay down the sultry line
let it hang from the tongue’s vine
sweeter than red wine
on words tonight we dine

-E.E.
