Haiku for Drunks: Moonshine

Thanks to all the Enthusiasts who entered our Moonshine haiku competition, and cheers to our winners, Naomi and Christina. Here are their haiku:

***

—Naomi

Take one deep breath in
hold it and swig that on down
swallow, then exhale

that is how I learned
to drink corn liquor white light
august on my lips

once in a log stump
trip to north carolina
1920 brew

smooth glass in my hands
peaches soaked at the bottom
of your mason jar

thought to pack the car
crate of that fire at my feet
drive west liquor rich

the thought came to me
of the incineration
if we were to crash

a wonderous sight
somewhere on the interstate
flames across the sky

***

—Christina

Clear, pure on my tongue,
Beautiful Appalachia
has warmed this sweet soul.

So many good men
Died face down in Hanoi mud
So we can drink this

Donny, my Donny
You are just like a child man
Please, shut the fuck up

Vodka, Kahlúa
Half and half or non-dairy
Call it: Caucasian

Abide to The Dude
A White Russian and a joint
Each time he partakes

Haiku for Drunks: Friday

—Josey

**
It’s Friday, Friday
The curse of Rebecca Black!
Sweet booze, heal my ears

**

Five o’clock feels far
Hands start to tremble at two
Make mine a double

Haiku for drunks: Fat Tuesday

—Josey


**

Gin fizz in a jar
No laughter, screams—keyboard sounds
Fat Tuesday at home

**

What do I give up?
For Lent, when booze is my faith?
That’s an easy one
