down the hill
into the yard
of misunderstanding:

a week before November,
the sky blue pearl white,
the landscape
cream colored beer.

I miss the days when disagreeing
was cause for friendship &

swings back to love.

Each sip made me into a fool

Drinking beer
watching box
removing clothes
final socks
climb in bed
sorry sight
under blanket
pull it tight
wonder what
I’ll dream tonight

Last Straw

smell of cigarettes and stale beer..
he’s passed out..
she grabs her suitcase…

The glitch

your day was glitchy
thoughts froze
fragmented coffee
tasted cold
reboot reboot
with beer,
not cash,
and a good
friend’s ear.

Gone Like Magic

Like magic, 235 days
with one beer in my fist.
Day 1 begins.
I am as guilty
Vladimir Putin
the border.

through naked
eyes of dream
sleeping beauty
saw her prince

unshaven in a
stained t-shirt
swilling beer went
back to sleep
