Verse

One time

Sad, long people

gathered around a table

waiting with drinks

in hand,

for air to grow convivial

for times to come gold-plated,

and the music to be not

so bland.

But the secret we all know

while we wait for

something more,

is that there is really

only one time-

when things taste beautifully

strange

and hearts wildly race

for the sentience of icy fresh

diffusing greedy in our

veins.

For this one time

to return

we all sit tight and wait-

anytime now…

let’s buy another round.
