Just a shot

I asked for a shot
and she brought me a bottle.
I still need to learn the language,
they have digits between words here,
but in a place where smiles are everywhere
these things are too easy to mix up.
At times like these
I always speak with my hands
and say sorry with my eyes
until we both laugh
and start it all again.
