Poetry #351
(published October 11, 2007)
Scotch and Polish
by Timothy Gager
there's a light shining through the ice cubes
glowing through your glass
Booze, caramel brown
looks better when you squint
with one eye
as the women dance around
you laugh at their trials and tribulations
but they do not
have a cracked windshield
or shattered lives
that is known
but you have ten more dollars
and that will make
love come
