She Is My by Paul Crompton

She is my first beer:
Quenches my thirst,
And eases my hot bones

She is my second beer:
Dulls the edges of the day,
And makes me want more

She is my third beer:
Turns my legs to jelly,
And intoxicates my head

She is my fourth beer:
Making me forget,
And want to dance

She is my fifth beer:
An invitation,
I cannot bear to refuse

She is my whiskey:
Puts a grin on my heart
As she lays me to bed.

Paul has been published on various indie websites and produces a chapbook of Brighton based poets. He regularly performs at spoken word events. His poetry  flits between the subtle to the caustic, from inward mediations to wry observations.
