A Tonic for the New Year

Quickly’s Winter Doldrums

How about a prompt? Write a toast.
Write a poem about drinking.
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.
