bevi troppo

by G.D. Watry

‘bevi troppo,’ she said,
pouring herself another glass of liquid ochre.
her smile matched
the curve of the glass;
a fire burned in my throat
and for a moment,
watching her,
i considered switching to red.

but enough is never enough
and the sun, swallowed,
continues to smolder.

G.D. Watry is a senior at Villanova University, where he studies english and media production. A resident of New Jersey, he recently returned to the U.S. from Rome, Italy, where he studied and worked. His previous poems have been featured in issue 8 of Shot Glass Journal.
