angel’s share

Is poemin’, for me, ever therapeutic, cathartic. Sure. And this may be some MFA blasphemy,  but  verse is all about a subtle nod of recognition, and that gentle snicker at the end of the bar.


Angel’s Share

I have written
give ‘em enough trope
aimed my ink
with a sniper scope
damn careful
not to interlope
nor forget
the angel’s share

having noted
I once lived in exile
made current
those memories erstwhile
with some bitter prose
to reconcile
and reimburse
the angel’s share

writing rewards
fictions of recompense
while talents
a tally of consequence
a perspired desire
left to condense
and provide
the angel’s share

*”Angels’ share” is a term for the portion (share) of a wine or distilled spirit’s volume that is lost to evaporation during aging in oak barrels.
