Emily Dickinson - Between the form of Life and Life

Between the form of Life and Life
The difference is as big
As Liquor at the Lip between
And Liquor in the Jug
The latter -- excellent to keep --
But for ecstatic need
The corkless is superior --
I know for I have tried

for it to be very dark i understand it a little. It gives you examples of the difference in the form of life and life itself.
