Tastes almost like love by Nalini Priyadarshni

A jigger of whisky and a jigger of vodka
Together in mango juice
Taste horrible
Not recommended at all – 
You say and we laugh
– neither is whisky in cocoa.

We both agree
Nothing beats golden lager on a hot day
Or any day, for that matter.
I like the taste of it on my lips
Almost as much 
As taste of you.

Nalini Priyadarshni lives in Punjab, India. Her poetry has appeared at Mad Swirl, Undertow Tanka, The Riveter Review, Writes & Lovers Café, The Gambler, Camel Saloon, besides numerous international anthologies.
