The 12th night I engineered
a chance meeting with her I said
"I think I love you,
I can't get you out of my mind"
She kicked me and went to call the police
I was overjoyed
I'd never got that far with a woman before
I spent a week without
your strong and heady brew,
Richly satisfying, ever sweet and never bitter,
I endured those days without much grace,
Subduing memories of your face,
And longing endlessly to place,
My lips upon your mug.
