bBar Napkins

All the wonderful poetry, I've written on napkins,
Probably about sex, education, or life.
The kind of stuff you don't talk about sober,
Maybe about me, or me and your wife.

Not writing anymore on the napkins,
Don't worry, I'm completely fine.
The paper quality has gotten so poor,
And it's hard to make even a line.

Getting back now to all of the napkins,
Which is really what this is all about.
Convenient, and always a challenge,
Recording my sins, thoughts, and my doubt.

So much for my days with the napkins,
A poet drunken and stupor and seer.
Missing the days tossed in the trashcan,
Thus beginning my illustrous career.

bBar Thinking

Usually I never drink on Mondays
Cos Monday's the day for my health
But my pet dog's sick and hurting
I've just got to take care of myself

If the river was made of fine whiskey
And I, just an plain, ordinary duck
I'd swim my way to the bottom
Drinking myself all the way back up

Loving all the you done me wrong tunes
Cigarette smoke among carpets of stale beer
Cigar tunes and straight gin skies above
Two more drinks and I'll shed a tear

Sometimes I feel like I'm the Devil
In between me and a deep blue sea
Looking like another tequlia sunrise
Is right where I'm going to be

bBarefeet

Barefoot in Georgia red mud
The earth struggling to fight back
In dryer times a victory

bBella's Fear

Death gurgling shrills and barks from
Bella, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Elegance and energy transformed into fear
Trembling curled up in a dark corner of the room
Where obedience and agility serve no purpose
Somewhere her sweet, gentle nature vaporated
Together, we curled up, in the dark corner
And holding each other, rode out the storm
