I Do Not Drink

written by: Rakind Kaur



if one ever wanted
to see me inebriated
despite the fact
I would never drink
drugs are not
what one would need
just hand me a
rustic old book
or sprinkle some water
on dry land
let me be lost
in a meadow somewhere
or sing on a swing
in a garden green
let me listen to kirtan
or the simple silence
nothing more is needed
nothing more is required
even just a child's laugh
would do me in
for there are far better intoxications
than a mere drink.



I live in LA and am an artist so being asked why I don't drink used to be a very common thing, so I'd decided to write a poem about it.

I'm an artistic soul that can't quite live without exploring all expects of art. I'd probably die painting in my garden. I've been that way since I was born. Passionately in love with nature, trying to find ways to express it. Poetry spills out with breath from me and I can't look at even trash without admiring its aesthetic. If you ever spot me anywhere, I promise you'll find me either laughing or lost in beauty that no one's yet spotted.
