a drunkard’s nigh upon late

Page


The prudent alternative to slamming glasses down in

a public brewhause  would be to kindly speak to your neighbor

and, with an audible speak, say “Well surely my my that brew was so good” ,

  for this is not a mad barren outpost among the thieves and scoundrels

where bloodied specters ransack ceremony.

The woodened tables at which we slobber have forthrightly hosted

the best of your despairs and our lies, and so why not yell as would a humble man

digesting his peas and burping quietly.

    I enjoyed this and the thieves and scoundrel reference was perfect, I am going to have a fun time looking through your other stuff but this grabbed my attention.

  2. I have nothing to add. No poetic words of praise. No constructive critique. I know that once I finished reading your post, I read it, then read it again, and just once more before coming to the conclusion that I couldn’t leave the comment box blank. Your talent shines.
