Letting Go

The bacchanalian spirit has infused life
since memory began,
to shed our skin
laugh hysterically
drink some and
then some more
and not look back,
to sway,
to flirt,
to let go
and live past ordinary moments
in recognition of the valve
that is the ancient jester,
to love it all
and want even more, even
to regret it for a moment as
the guilt of our forebears
trampling our conscience,
then letting go once more
lest we become our elders
and live in despair
of a lost mythical age.
