AshTo Jonathan Penton's previous piece     A thought, lost to meTo Jonathan Penton's next piece
you might
or you might not know
that the high of absinthe
is to be experienced slow
as the tingling sensation
moves throughout your body
and you sit
absolutely still
with a rush more profound
than that of exercise
(Yes, I admit,
not very good for you)
and the caress of satisfaction
moving through your blood
your limbs
and reminding you
that you are a part of your body
and never limited to your brain
