I Found You In A


I found you in a
Bar of course. That is where I
Find them all. I fell
For you, like sliding
Slowly off a stool, knowing
What's next. Powerless.
Not really caring
That the next stop is the floor,
And, unfriendly hands,
Grabbing and dragging

You hit my heart like
A quart of Bourbon, sweet bite,
Warm and comforting
One.
Two.
Three.
Another empty bottle and
Mirror glass in my knuckles
Are all that remain of our
Love

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
