My head

A wine-box drunk from the tap

Removed from the carton

Blown out to bursting

To ease last veins of wine into the neck

Moist air and odour of tannins

Spray of microscopic droplets is all

Imperceptible to eye

Felt on the lashes

On purple-stained tongue

Produce of the vine


Vacuous, empty
