  • Bestooled (from Johntee’s Public Service)

    A water bejeweled glass
    in front of
    a stooped bestooled man
    staring deep into the drink
    lost in time
    Laughing with friends
    no longer there
    at jokes
    no longer told
    Singing songs
    no longer sung
    with loves
    come and gone
    Enjoying life to the fullest
    with good companions gone

    ‘Can I get you another?’
    With a shake of the head
    and a small rueful smile
    the last drop is downed
    the stool emptied

    Frost-beaded, a Bud
    would have you see
    that cool friend
    of memory.

      Thanks, Johntee! I really liked your word ‘bestooled’ so I had to use it. Your scene just came with it.

      I'm glad to see any of my stuff
      have any sort of second life
      and it gives me a chance
      to give the glass a second glance.

    I like the way you've continued the story here. There is much to appreciate from the poets in the zone.
