Cory's Chronicles
Beer Bottle Prophesies

i found myself
at a party
hanging
with some friends
when a pretty
little thing
walked in...
 
she looked
barely
old enough
to drink
but hot to trot
in her
half peeled label...
 
she kept
eyeing me
throughout
the night
while she was having
fun
with her friends at the bar...
 
i could tell
from her hot
and
sweaty gaze
she wanted more
than a couple
of dances...
 
after awhile
when she realized i wasn’t biting
and
she was able to sum up enough liquid courage
she walked over to me
all innocent
like a schoolgirl dare...
 
she started to chat me up
so i played along
it only took a couple of minutes
before she leaned in close
whispering that shes heard about me
and
knows what i like...
 
she smiled
and
confessed that she just broke up with
her boyfriend mike
who it turns out she likes well enough
but he is just not hard enough
for her taste...
 
we laugh as i comment that it sounds
like his lemonade just didnt do the trick
for her black cherry
of which after she feigned shock
i took her out back
and
quickly had a sip to quench my thirst...
 
she was was nice
and
sweet
like the cool aid i partook of in my younger years
her moves while not completely knowledgeable
refreshingly did the job
leaving no doubt as to my enjoyment...
 
definitely wild enough
to keep me interested
but
there was a heavyness
that was lacking
which left me wanting more
than the sweet taste upon my tongue...
 
after sharing a couple of bottles with her
she wanted my digits for a future repeat performance
i left her with a hug a kiss
and
a half scribbled note which read
take it home to mikey honey
he’ll eat anything...
 
...that’s life...
