In another life

In another life

our hearts beat

arteries fused

shared blood flowing through us

we cured the sick

we ruled with czars

we loved freely

in dirty bars

they could not stop us with poisoned wine

nor bullet had the force

we could have floated

suspended like hovering angels

in the frigid waters

oh but the ice trapped us

solid and unyielding

we clawed and raked its skin with nails like knives

but as it turned out we’d never drink vodka again
