Uncorked

Slice off the foil top
exposing the core.
Line up for center.
Slight pressure.
Twist clockwise.
Again, again, again, again, again, again

Grip tightly in one hand.
Firm hold in the other.
Pull.
“Thwap”
The pressure releases.

Tip bottle downward.
listen for the “clap, clap, clap”
watch the achromatic liquid tumble round the glass.
Spirits high.
Imbibe.
