recipe

By Jimmy Flynn

 

grab a grimy glass,
and fill it with the rocks
you use
to stone me.

now add
one part Maker’s,
one part water,
Kanye’s Celebration,
smoked Spirits,
lip bites,
and a dash of bitters.

slice up some limes,
line up some salt,
and let your laugh
escape through your nose.

serve on a futon
or a rug—
your choice.

now flush the remains
down the drain,
and leave the glass outside to
collect the rain.

don’t share this with
anyone.
it’s an old family secret.
