Boxing Day Party – by Jinny Fisher

 

Her father looms towards her.

Brandy breath engulfs her face
as he prises the soda can
from her fingers –

wraps them round a glass:
raspberry gin –
it’s sweet, like fruit gums.

She watches the open bottle tilt
in his hand. Acid slides
to the back of her tongue.
