Wine Drunk (Step One)

You were wine drunk at the party

Laughing about nothing, probably.

I was wine drunk at the party

Improbably laughing about anything.

There’s a storm in the bottle that was once filled with wine.

There’s a storm of laughter coming from what was once mine.

And it’s fine.

‘Cause I’m wine drunk at the party and I’m feeling alright.

Step one.
