Some Aspects Are Irreconciliable - Poem by RIC BASTASA

this is the story
you meet someone whom you think is very interesting
and you go to a busy place
buy beer and talk a while
the usual get to know scripts

more bottles to make
a certain familiarity
more words
and less periods
less question marks now
more of introspection
and then
all the questions are erased
the answers are too much to take
the conversations drag
and contempt comes at the last drink
'one for the road' the other says

you leave and you realize
home is always sweeter even without
anyone whom you at first think is very interesting.
