A quick minute depending on how hard you hold


I found this poem and to me describes the bar scene well. The part that I liked was at the end the last three lines.

Mizpellt wurdz

We could stay here forever

or we could go back to the bar

and drink a little more

with our elbows on the top

of our nest of peanuts

people

and piss

in wrong corners where

no one was looking

until you did

directed me to the washroom

and to you in turn

a romance that wasn’t romantic

but was just a place

where we went

when we wanted

to find a place

worth finding

if only for a little while

that lasted a long time

*

We’ve come undone

by doing what we’ve

always come to do

which was find love

in one another

that was strong enough

to give another pause

and wonder

what it would be like

to be us

and to have you

the way I did

before they did

and before you did too

*

I’m wasting my time

by looking at my watch

instead…
