rum

rum.
watered down
to a faint hiss on the tongue
yet
full of sweat
and sunshine.

poison me with cola, boys!
and ice dragged from the filthy ganga's shore!
till i sing
of sweat
and sunshine

and rum.

I like this.

Its not as effective as you could have made it though. Most of your poems end very abruptly or expectedly which I find distracts from the brilliance of the first three lines (most usually) - however, this was great!

Also, how about an ode to beer at mojos. pretty please?
