Written by George Gad Economou
you’ve drunk with rick yuppies and broke barflies;
talked drunken philosophy with a failed writer and a successful English
professor and analyzed the woes of love with disinterested bartenders.
bouncers know you by name (they also recognize their foot print
on your ass) and some bar owners greet you heartily because of
your magnificent tab you’ve amassed that’ll pay off their mortgage.
in the end, you realize the best place to drink
is home; sleep it off anywhere, no one will care
(bar, perhaps, a spouse or parent), and you don’t have to cross
a single street.
no way you’ll get lost (it is possible, come to think of it)
and, nevertheless, at worst you’ll piss in the kitchen sink and sleep
in the bathtub.
