Last night I was accosted
by White Russians at Chucks.
One was a double and somebody
bought me one twice
and the old man bought the first one.
By my calculations that would make,
uh, me snockered.
I calculated correctly.
My articulation became a curious thing,
a cross between baby talk and Novocain.
And my normal sensuous sway
was more of a stiff stilted stagger
on the way to powder my nose.
I was really rather boring.
I didn’t fall down
or laugh till I peed.
I did, in my uninhibited state,
make a few friends watch
a 4 minute video of my grandkids
on my new phone.
I was having a good time
with the Russians,
feeling pretty loopy.
When I happened to notice
my eyelids getting droopy.
I pronounced I was done.
All my friends had left, save one
I brought with me.
The ride home was brief,
I must’ve fallen asleep.
I scurried for the door feeling whiney
the bitter cold freezing my hiney.
My birthday wasn’t over to my surprise.
One last gift in the bedroom,
close my eyes….
