There’s always next time

on the back patio once again

Canadian Glencarin half full of

one hundred and one proof bird

a middle-shelf stick in hand

perusing a paper cigar catalog

a rainstorm just passed

and a rainbow illuminates itself

another fine time to be alive

but the tranquility and peacefulness

that I should feel is interrupted

first by my beast of a dog

barking at the neighbors

then by these goddamned flies

crashing into my head

landing on me

and in my drink

I guess I should start bringing a

saucer outside with me

to place atop my glass

now there’s sirens in the distance

crackles of thunder close by

a fly in my drink






…so much for a relaxing evening
