Poison association

We bring it in;
Invited or not, it's given welcome.
Beginning clear, sharp, sparkling —
Becomes a bit cloudy, soft, charming … then
Wicked, belligerent, rough.

The next time it shows up,
We will have forgotten three and four and five and more.
Seeing one and two … yup — we always re-open the door.
Would that I remembered as much.
