POETRY: BEER BOTTLE BOTTOMS BY PAUL TRISTRAM

Round as two halves of a beer bottle bottom
cwtching each other tightly again
after the tumble, crack and fall.
A slight sliver missing…here and there
and a deep, dark, bold scar which shows
that they were tested, their strength endured
and was meant to last against the Law of Sod.
Every single stumble and rise has meaning,
just like every bump, break and bruise.
It shows that you have lived and survived
another daily beating from life’s many storms.
