Ecstatic Can Happen Among the Drunk

If you begin drifting off when a friend, over nachos,

tries to explain how seashells relate to the family unit,

if you refuse a tequila shot because you’re tired

and even though the conversation moves to spirit,

you want to go home and read Jung, Don’t. If the man is

married and his thoughts turn to chakras and your root

ignites, if he knows you’ve ignited, if you take the shot,

move on to another bar with your friend and her men

when sanctuaries of her dress begin talk of ghosts then

shove you to your great-grandmother’s grave,

don’t drift off. Reach out your hand. Ignite them.
