Small Bar

Sliver of a table in a small, noisy bar

Or tavern we chatted: life, loves our

Loves, especially, frustrating, mad

Though they make us and as bad

As they can be

Necessary it seemed to us key

Critical maybe not to our souls

But certainly to those right now goals

That put together, piled up

Make a way that can fill life’s cup.

Bit it aint easy, for either as different

As we may be, each failed sent

Us back to where we start.

How many times can I start?
