Love's Liquor - Nov. 29, 2022

don’t we dole out love

like it’s liquor

in a locked cabinet?

give strangers a shot glass

of something cheap

if anything at all?

while those

in our inner circle

get treated to the

open bar 24/7

we must be careful though

if the drinks are too strong

even friends and family

won’t handle the bite the burn

and made too weak and

watery they may go

somewhere else to

share their caring

point being it’s a skill

knowing how to make

a cocktail

with just the right amount

of affection
