no more

walking through the streets

greeting the dawn

jaundiced eyes & of feeling

just a one night stand

she was pleasant enough

was sober enough

to have driven us home

from some party I’d wandered

been invited at last minute

to be dragged away at one

by this creature of the night

taken me to her bed

thrown me out first light

with talk we’ll meet up again

& I knew walking no

no we wouldn’t

I’d broken the promise to me

of no more last minute complicateds

but to keep it simple from now on

meet ‘em sober love ‘em sober

see if that builds something more

than drunken fumbles

leading to exit doors

One thought on “no more
