Drunken Crow Flies—Wea’ve Written Weekly

Between blue green crags of cave ceiling

Bleeding pastels of fighting ghosts.

.

Over twice removed ties to the wife

Who spent all of her happiness on her cats.

.

Through the comings and goings wearing his half second of guilt

When she saw the YouTube videos of happy babies.

.

Passed the double doors of the pub circling over the bar

To perch on the seat and order another bourbon, neat.
