Blue bottle with hearts cut into the glass and a fluted gold top, with a neon ikat printed box.

Spring break hangover in a bottle–which sheds its lovely color on the hands–a generic tropical in a take-home plastic cocktail glass, garnished with artificial flowers.
Passionfruit vodka on top, vinyl couch cushion musk and failed midterms on the bottom.

I discovered this a gazillion years ago, in a “Things You Left In My Apartment” break-up box.

A college roommate–she was a drummer–turned me on to Peter Gabriel’s Passion, the soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ. I’ve yet to see the movie, but we played the album for two semesters straight.
