the ones you miss

the ones you miss
most are the ones
who depart the
soonest – trying to
get out of that one
requires a time
machine or two
fingers of whiskey

between thirty-four

between thirty-four
and forty-eight, we are
celebrating birthdays
in the east village
tonight, stringing the
eighties to the nineties
from the jukebox in
the corner. most of us
will become more
repetitive with
time – for now, we
will rely on
booze and song

we made a pact,

we made a pact,
twenty days
into the new year,
that we would keep
our resolutions
simple – just
stay alive
.
it’s quite
obvious
we’ve never
had to make
resolutions before

watch us engineer

it will take two

it will take two
fingers of new
york minutes

to stop polishing
off one another’s
sentences as if
we were meant to
be. i’ll try to not
be disappointed when
you disappoint me

at three to four drinks

or break down – it’s
really up to you

summer cools the

summer cools the
backs of our throats
like a smooth
conversation,
not to be taken
for granted

the daylight saving

the daylight saving
plan often includes
getting stuck in unusual
times and spaces. whether
we are fast-forwarding the
REM state or forfeiting
an hour to drinks,
we are on the losing
end as the minutes
tango by. careful –
do not be drawn by
the nostalgic rhythm

before evening

before evening
ends and morning
begins, we will
gather for one
last round, our
bellies nine-tenths
golden
, dreams
four-fifths clearer
