One hot and brandy-sweetened night,
The air was warm with a gentle breeze,
The stars were out, a magical sight,
The moon shone down, so bright and please.
The waves rolled in, ever so soft,
A cool mist arose, evaporating fast,
The night was alive, with an almighty roar,
The fireflies flew, a shadow of the past.
The night was alive with such a sweet smell,
Of brandy, and honey, and of course, wine,
The birds sang a tune, such a delightful jest,
The stars twinkled, so divine.
The night was so peaceful, and so still,
No one around, no one to hear,
The night was so special, one of a kind,
A night to remember, so near and dear.
One is the Limit
The bar maid looked out
sized me up, brown eyes sad:
...what'll you have?
One hot and brandy-sweetened night.
she mopped the cold rings
off the countertop:
...will that be all?
Keep the tab open for Life.
the barstool swiveled round
taking in the room, the crowd
...want your change now?
Everything's like sunset going down
hear her hanging the bar-rag
stacking the cork coasters high
...need to call a cab, Pops?
One cold and brandy-bittered night.

One hot and Brandy-sweetened night
I set a heated breath
upon the nape
of a neck
I'd never met...
The scent of a liquor
I'd never forget..
fruit and flowers
on the patio
and no where
to put aside
the cool sweated glass
I've never had a Brandy
as faint and delicate
as on that
Elixir of Kings
One hot and brandy-sweetened night
A year or two ago
’Twas filled with massive want and waste -
But left no warm afterglow.
I woke to learn my bank account
Had plummeted to empty
For I’d spent far too much
On endless drinks aplenty.
What’s worse, I did not recall the taste
Of that which cost so much,
French cognac at its finest,
The drink of kings and such.
Louis XIII is a true elixir
A drink of divine delight
Still, a glass or two will cost you
Take all your money in a single night.
I fear I had not just one – or two
But bought the room a round
And now I’m dead broke even though
I'm the most popular guy in town.
