A Tonic for the New Year

Quickly’s Winter Doldrums

How about a prompt? Write a toast.
OR
Write a poem about drinking.
OR
Use the Thin Man photo, find some chotchkie or expression or symbol.

 

The Christmas tree is leaning

ready to be taken down

heading toward the floor

like a tumbling clown.

Say good-riddence to last year

and welcome the new one in

if it isn’t pleasing at least we’ll

be plastered on cups of gin.
