Almost Remembered

It’s not called grain
when it’s the size of an aircraft carrier
Then it’s called ambition

And if you distill vodka from grain
you distill ambrosia from something this large

Just the merest taste
and you live seven lives
for a couple hours
in the garden of the gods

and after you sleep it off
it’s gone

but the memory
which isn’t quite there
wells up indistinctly
whenever you have to make
a complex moral decision
