Departed Loiner’s final glass vessel; merlot bereft

In smithereens; akin to spirits of those left behind

Fragmented for regeneration; successor yet untold

 

Like Loiner, vessel existentially intact two months prior

Their chance meeting short, though physically & spiritually fruitful

Distressingly, House of York affiliate’s hindmost drop of fermented grape

 

Empty merlot vessel bereft of it’s significance in clan’s story

Cast as blindsiding villain in minefield of triggers sorrowful

Bottle, formerly landlord of pater’s endmost vino; now tenant of domain refuse.
