Champagne Lives

complete me. again 

salutations are waiting. 
goblet lives hold court
in unison expecting 
grandstand recognition: 

sports heros, intelligentsia, 
artistes, politicos, lovers, and 

we have no time to 
inventory our import, yet 
waiting for the buzz is 
all the rage.  waiting for 
anything that fills 
secret voids 

is salutation enough 
for this stage.
