There was nothing to fortify lifes effervescent wine:
I took some aqua vitae from Khizar and added it.
Why should one be obliged to Khizar for his aquas loan?
I poured a little of my hearts blood into the wine~cup.
To make the wine still bitterer and my chest still more sore,
I melted the glass itself and added it to my wine.
How can dilutions be as good as the real stuff itself?
I pressed wine out of grapes direct and filled my cup with it.
