tastes of tanqueray

a gin and tonic

her voice laced with cigarettes

and a twist of lime


watching him approach

under lowered eyelashes,

secretively smiles


eating the olive

she twirls the martini glass,

laughs coquettishly


conversation flows

neglected ice melts slowly

ten left on the bar


a cold ten blocks home

warm laughter in the stairwell

still tasting of lime

    Whimsy-mimsy, this has my mouth watering. I’m going to make my husband take me out to a bar (which is a bit of a mission here in Qatar) and spend a ridiculous amount on a gin and tonic! Big smiles. x

      OH my – I didn’t realize you were in Quatar. Wow…Good luck with that then. I don’t drink much, but I’m a sucker for a good beer or a tanqueray and tonic anytime.
