Two glasses stuck
and sealed tightly
so no water can
look closely. Only
one glass is real,
so spilled liquid
must be calculated
by puddle size, as
to whether the glass
was half empty or
completely full. In
addition, why was water
poured into a wine glass?
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.
Water will have its way…
Well put, Lisa!

That is a wonderful closing question Sara! Made me laugh. Always glad to see you at the Muse my friend!
Thanks, Carrie! Always love being there.
Love this–the image of being sealed to emptiness and then considering everything that has spilled.
Love the curiosity being built up and the eventual question asked but still not answered. Great way of presenting it Sara!
I had that same question about the water, Sara 😀
Chemistry / volume / fascinating you went in this direction. And shame, shame for pouring water into a beautiful wine glass. Bottoms up.
Still caught in what should be…
I like your thoughts.
