After Drinking Too Much Gin

When, having showed you out, I sat

down at the table again, I kept going,

almost to the floor;


Funny the way everything seems to run in.


For example.  It did not

feel like it was the


floor that I was headed toward.  No.


It was only


the floor by accident, by



as though otherwise, I might have existed in

entirely different terms.  Of


illimitable landscapes.  Ever-

broadening horizons.


And not just in terms, like this, of up, or down.


The melt-off water, in a

single vein, has


split the long drive, and outside,

and all around there is a great


rushing sound.
