Just after midnight

Just after midnight

As the drunks

Spill out

Of the bars

And into the street,

Shuffling past

My apartment.

Below my window,

Stumbling

With laughter,

Holding each other

Off the sidewalk,

As they fumble

For keys

And missing wallets.

Occasionally

Pausing

For sloppy kisses,

And awkward groping.

Unaware

And uncaring,

That they are

Not

Alone

Here.

Eventually

They find their cars,

Occasionally

Surrendering

The keys

To a lesser drunk,

Or less frequently calling

A taxi,

Then continuing

The clumsy

Lust

On the hood of the car,

Beneath a street light,

Bathed in yellow

And basted

In beer.
