Ice cream and beer

Today was beer and ice cream.

We raised our glasses to pay

homage to Saint Michael

and that Sham-Wow guy.


The skies outside

were all used up

and looked  as if they were

holding something

back from us all.


The ground was cold

as our glasses were

emptied and closure

was miles away

from where we were.
