no bottles are empty
if you listen to them
lifted close to the ear
are the far off echoes
of past songs once warbled
in besotted stupor
of ladies in red
in soft rustled skirts
and mumbled regrets
for toes stepped upon
declarations of love
while he folded to bed
swift mellifluous snores
I am out of his head
