Bitter

i love bitter things:
poems that punch me in the gut,
and coffee without sugar;
movies that leave me feeling like the babylon burned at my feet;
hard, dark chocolate you have to melt on your tongue to taste;
vodka from my grandfather’s shot glass;
flowers about to die;
the moment of regret after the sun sets;
chipped nail polish
and blood-bitten lips.

i love bitter things.
