One For The Road

The Friday night

Drunks

Parade

Outside my window,

Stumbling

Along the sidewalk

To their cars

Or another bar,

Loudly

Shuffling their feet

And yelling

At each other-

A drunk’s sense

Of volume

Is seriously impaired.

The screaming

Yields to laughter,

Yields to more screaming,

And eventually yields

To silence.

Car doors slam

Closed,

As clumsy hands

Fumble

For lost keys

And companionship.

Bottles drop

To the street

Loudly

Shattering

The near calm

Of the fast approaching morning.

Tires squeal

As collisions

Are somehow avoided,

And laughter erupts

With the vanishing

Of taillights

In the distance

At the end

Of the street.
