Dancing with Dionysus

drink wine with me in the bathroom
red stains coating sweet lips
i’m drunk on you
intoxicating highs
spinning the room
like a runaway disco ball
this bathtub is big enough for two bodies
tangle me in your vines and
make me forget the pain that comes with sobriety
we’ll submerge ourselves
till the sun makes dusty tile sparkle
i won’t remember a thing
except these soft purple
that pepper my skin
and taste like your touch
