Hey, I love Cosmos! Them's fightin' words!

Brilliant analysis. You're right on target in distinguishing the effects of gin and vodka. Vodka is indeed the great trickster. I wrote a story once about gin, calling her Gina, a femme fatale.

I'm a gin snob, not a gina fatale, though I did write a persona poem in the voice of gin, called "Martini," who is kind of a tennis lady type of alcoholic. Rhyme scheme is AAAA...for about 40 lines. Gin's obsessive. Maybe Laura Orem has it right: Stick to Cosmos!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
