mixed drink

rosemary for remebrance

fennel for strength

two ounces of gin from the cabinet

a squeeze of lemon from our tree in the backyard

i sink onto the left side of the couch, where you always sat

i wrap myself in your sweater 

breathing in the scent of your cologne 

i drink my cocktail of memories and conjure your presence

and for just a little while

you come back to me
