time to walk

sunny afternoon

just past warm

as the air hung heavy

there was silence in the bar

we were sucking on slow sorrows

I spoke to fill the gap

this piece I’d read

on the human condition

& this one said

fella you are so full of crap

& it’s not like I was quoting

Solzhenitsyn

or god forbid Nietsczche

I gave him the long look

waited ‘til he looked aside

said ok fellas

have it your way

it was time for me

to walk away
