humming

cracked rum 

eyes

             drum drum drum

huh-umming a tune

swirling like a ball in a jug

a warbling happiness, tickling edge of tongue

not whitman’s yawp

but I’d like to think it’s similar

not barbaric, but smooth, hot

and jammed with defiant spurs

of soldiers’ souls rattling along the

marigold landscape

         towards home
