Goldschlager

Sipping Goldschlager

cinnamon schnapps with gold flakes,

24-carat gold flakes float in it,

lots of flakes.

My wife asks me if they do any harm.

We had been talking of food additives,

hormones in meats, dairy products,

that might grow hair on her chest,

or make my voice funny.

I didn’t think the body could absorb gold.

So, what happens to the stuff?

Is is shit out immediately,

my piss doesn’t turn golden,

or does it accumulate

then come out all at once

one huge

gold-speckled

power dump?

All over Italy,

that’s where they make the stuff,

I bet addicts peer into crappers

prospecting for enough flakes

to buy another bottle.

Funny people, the Italians.
