Shaking and Stirring

Behind the bar with silver shaker,

mixing cocktails with practiced flair,

a little entertainment for customers’ sake.

Trim and handsome, beard, blond hair.


Always smiling and well dressed:

today, red trousers, navy vest.

I think he’s officially a sommelier,

but is he straight or is he gay?


Can’t tell the color of his eyes,

but they’re animated, bright.

He clearly does his work with pride.

I wonder what he’s doing tonight.
