Absinthe (in Barcelona)

Watch the flames eat the sugar cube
Watch the absinthe drink the flames
Light a cigarette or two while
Faces blur and settle into other faces
Words turn and twist and lose meaning
Stagger among the revelers
herded by mimes
Hear the music roar into
the old baroque ballroom,
and drive away the ghosts
of graceful dancing
Cause its the season of flames
and the night is melting
Everything is melting
Wallow in the formless void
of a decaying love.
