Empty Beer Bottles

“A bottle of beer makes more miracles
than a church full of saints.”

– Anonymous

(Trust nothing but beer bottles.)

empty amber bottles in columns and rows
twenty-four equals six-times-four in a case
can beer bottles tell how men drown their sorrows?
every secret shared by men when skirts they chase?

triumphs and victories that give men all thrill?
every contract or scheme made by men as well?
really, empty bottles have so much to spill
and yet, (thank goodness!) they do not kiss-and-tell.

discreet and indiscreet
is beer.

naughty and haughty
is pilsen.

timid and glib
is amber.)

– secret
is between
thrill and spill.
