love can be so bitterMature

Love can be so bitter.
I started drinking gin
when you left, my red
lipstick stains the rim
of the glass like in
those old movies we
used to watch.  Can
she recite every word
of your favorite film,
does she care enough
to do the voices?
You were always the
olive in my martini
now you’re in some-
one else’s drink and
I am drinking more 
than my fair share
just trying to cleanse
the taste of you 
from my tongue.

The End
