A Good Drink

Someone sent me a link yesterday to one of those drinks that’s guaranteed to do everything: apple cider vinegar, lemon, ceylon cinnamon, cayenne pepper and water. Honey if you want it sweet. This drink, said the Fit Expert, will lower Your Bad Numbers: diabetes, cholesterol, bacteria, and who knows what else.

I want a drink
that will have
to do with numbers.
A drink to
help me sing
like Aretha
Ella F.
tap dance and tango
make sure all children
have enough to eat
put a good book
next to my bed
a drink to
eliminate the need
for social media
days at a time
a drink
that can
actually speak
often tell good jokes
imagine that drink
and what it could say.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
