green stop sign ~ a tritina

Tritina – on whimsy/nonsense –  3 triplets , using an end word order 1-2-3,3-1-2,2-3-1, + 1 end line using end words in the order 1-2-3. Similar syllable count in each line

The red wine bottle glinted green
I pulled out with a pop, the cork stop
I knew from the stars, it was a holy sign

The bartender slyly gave me to sign
the bill; I paid too much green
But by then,I really couldn't stop

Red shot up my veins, made my heart stop
Last I read was the ambulance sign
Blue lights wailed, and I went green

Green scrubs sent me off, to my final stop ~ an RIP sign
