If life ain't been no crystal stair
by Sofia Kioroglou




Enjoy what is in your glass

whether half full or half empty

just let it whirl around and

savor its body and color


Don't just swig it but sip it slowly

allow its flavor to linger on your palate

Take what life throws at you

and if it is a lemon make some iced tea


If life ain't been no crystal stair

embrace the tacks and splinters

today's slings and arrows are

tomorrow's fish-and-chip paper



a black line
