D is for Dark (and Stormy)

My mood is dark and stormy
so here, let me make you a drink
A half can of body, spiced and frustrated
A dry quarter of pleasure, sharp
to make the stomach acid roll
And a tablespoon of sour, squeezed
escaping like it has better places to go
Mixed together with two ice islands
trying their best to stay afloat.

It’s been a rough week
inside this body
craving something more
It’ll be over in a day or two
then red sky at morning
it’ll be red and stormy
then red
then serene, waiting
until it’s dark and stormy again.

  1. To me, this poem came across as a mood swing and the protagonist’s attempt to deal with it with the help of a drink.

    Pray, tell me what this is about?
