i was at the bar

I was at the bar being morose
as usual
I had enough to get half a head on
and that was it
hoping a friend would drop in
make the night more interesting
I kept looking around
but no.
one look round
a woman caught my eye
smiled
I smiled back
not knowing who she was
but hey, impolite doesn’t get friends
she stepped up
I watched her
as the guy she was with
stepped out
‘so, who are you?’ she purred
I did a double take
‘me? Just a guy getting a drink’
‘I like you’ she said and smiled
wouldn’t take a drink
had brought hers over
‘I’d like to take you outside..
would you like to come with me?’
what about your man?
‘Oh, he’s just a friend, I don’t feel good
coming out on my own’
we finished our drinks
went outside
leaned against the wall
kissed a little bit
her hands wandered
‘come to the car, we can sit in the back’
she opened the door
the guy, her guy
was sat in the front
‘don’t mind him, he doesn’t care, he’s gay’
this didn’t work for me
I didn’t know what the gig was
but knew I wanted no part in it
and left
I was at the bar being morose
as usual
I had enough to get half a head on
the barman smiled, grinned
‘you back again?’
I ordered a beer
a friend dropped in
‘hi, hows you? anything new happening?
No I said
tipped back my beer
and winked at the barman
he knew his job
like I know mine.
