The glass is half full because the bottle emptied, half empty because it’s undrinkable. Glass of the tippler is half full. A boozer’s glass’s half empty, already. The glass is half moon of lucid empty, empty soon to be refilled. Two-thirds is a standard glass. The glass is half empty threats. Half full when it’s bad Matisse. Empty is the glass Bacon crushed with his bare fist. Who throw stones at glass houses are full up with empty, or half seas over. Half full’s for dentures. Half empty, the tooth fairy. Half full are the glasses we keep filling October.
