Wine-red lips


Wine glass resting
on my lips
they are red
neither happy nor sad
with a residue of life
even bitterness tastes
sweet after wine

fragrance of
sinks into my soul
glass becoming emptier
the wine has a taste of

I rest
like a worn out memory
drowned in a wine glass
I laugh
forgetting whatever I
left behind

this wine
that rests on my lips
it’s good
like life
my lips are red
until I wash it away
and drink
a glass of life
