Ode to Aluminum Cups…

IMG_1093My Bright Aluminum Tumblers

By Michael Ryan

Who are you
long legged
woman in my dream
kissing me open mouthed
pressing me for ice
we fetch together naked
from the freezer
with bright aluminum tumblers
red deep blue purple
icy water
so cold it hurts
lips and teeth and membrane
lacy lattices of ice
shattering on our tongues
who are you
how could I have forgotten
my bright aluminum tumblers
I had to hold with both hands
they couldn’t be broken
even if I dropped them
that’s how little I was

Hmm.  Lol.  Oh my.  I donno about long-legged nekked ladies, but I have aluminum tumblers.   From my grandma.  Pictured above.
