Ode on a Perrier Bottle

By Sahand Rabbani

Translucent green barrier
Tames the bubbly Perrier,
Keeps unruly carbonation
From its imminent liberation.

By volume three and thirty centilitres
Writ 'long the bottom's dented features.
Stickered seal of green and white,
Like cap, name and bottle does unite.

Broad sensual base tapered to top
Caught me, an instant, first at the shop.
How your fluid prize I long to consume,
But instead by you am I consumed.

L'eau avec gaz, ma chère carbonée,
Seulement tu peux me satisfaire.
Je suis amoreaux de toi, Perrier!
