Random Poem:

last call

piled up on a heap of floor
both eyes posted to the door
gesticulating aimlessly
at the peanut gallery
to get the neon clue
what good will words do?
they don't seem to take a hint
meanwhile, we erode in thin air,
dripping boredom everywhere,
nudging and napping,
yawping and yawning
a little louder for effect
without any sign of result,
so we wait for the curfew fairy
to drive the herd away,
for you and i to have time
to sit and be still
