Don’t, Never Try

Don’t, Never Try

——

Went to the bar

near where she lived

to force serendipity

instead

while lost in the glass

I saw her

stuck inside the mouth

of the ghostly figure

standing by the jukebox

I had to leave

quickly

before disappointment

spread

Went to another bar

on the other side

of the concrete

but

found her again

at the bottom

of my bottle

and I didn’t cry out

for lack of anything

to utter

but the whiskey

it boiled

and the disappointment

it spread
