Poem: Bottles

after Borg de Nobel

three empty bottles, three empty cans
one empty beaker, one empty pint
glass (none
that hold air,

__________eight servings of the bare
wall outlined in chubby pink or cyanosis
or gold that can’t be bought

______is a full jug of wine

take off the corks
and there’s already blood

__________________when glass can’t stick
______to your shelves or mine
