NOTES ON AN EMPTY BEER GLASS

 

First off, we write the notes about the empty beer glass.  We don’t write notes on the empty beer glass.  This is further proof that the empty beer glass leads to douchebag behavior.  We sit patiently whittling away the seconds waiting for the barkeep to arrive and replenish our beverage.  A shaky hand struggles to keep a grip on the pen and relay thoughts from brain to page.  The tension rises and a bit of edginess emerges.  The words are filling up the page in sloppy cursive.  We may not even be able to read the handwriting come tomorrow morning.  Come, bartender, please take my order and bring me a new beer with fluid filled to the brim.

 

An empty beer glass

inspiring torrent flow of words

waiting for refill

 

just thinking literature

can compensate for parchment
