Gin and Tonic



/ poetry

A gentleman's beverage.

I didn't want to go
but he was my friend
and needed a lift
There was real music
made by real musicians
and there was dancing
by people who didn't
care about beats and style
His date was pretty
and she danced
I drank gin and tonic
she drank whiskey
then smoked a cigarette
and she danced closer
smelling of whiskey
and cigarettes
and closer still
until her lips tasted
of whiskey and cigarettes
He asked what happened
they had to take a cab
I drink gin and tonic
and I didn't want to go.
