First Time

Whatever, nuts, an Ali if
I want to be. At a bar, IPA at
Ending day. Spending a stray,
And I’ll be the one to cure myself,
Not them, with their
ridiculous meetings.
Don’t know what time it is,
And I don’t think I want to.

She put my change in a puddle by the taps.
I hate
that. Do I wipe it off
with one if the little napkins?
What would be the most
polite reaction?
Why do I care?

Oscars are on. Do I
Care? Just noticing I don’t
Know a lot today. It’s the reluctant
Cloud cover. So cowardly. Why
don’t you just rain already?
