Loop

Muddy lines,
There’s mold in that beer,
Drink up!
Ash-ridden tables,
Chalky air,
Smoke one, too!
Again again again.
Until,
Black.
Sleep.
Alarm.
Snooze.
Alarm, groggy eyes, grumble, yawn.
Broken thermostat.
I shiver to the bathroom,
Shave shit shower.
Low pressure water.
Brush my teeth.
Eat.
Work.
Drunk guests,
Boss drinking behind the bar,
False authority,
I get paid today!
Clock out.
Muddy lines,
Chalky air,
Red eyes and a crossed stare.
Drink drink
Repeat.
