Goblin Fruit: Autumn Edition
Marcie Lynn Tentchoff

The police
tried to take me
as I left your house.

I staggered,
trying to walk
their silly line.

One man laughed.
"I think he's had
one drop too many."

So I fled.
I could not let
them see my tears.

Bright, guilt red.
I could not bear
to tell them all that

They were right.
I'd had one drop --
one drop too many,

Dearest love,
one drop too much
For you to live.
