Last Night’s Last Drink


Somewhere between the seated laughs,

The frosted walks, the pulse of music,

I woke to find my last drink gone.


Gone is the mist that makes the club

Seem mystical, magical; someone

Else’s life. It is no longer that.


Now it’s my body that contorts

To unfamiliar rhythms –

My arms that bend, my spine that twists.


My face – it is my face, a stranger’s face –

I see, eyes closed in ecstasy,

Lips parted, hair – a smouldering halo.


Cinderella’s charm has lost its power.

The midnight’s gone and past.

I crawl back to my human skin. Then revelling is done.
