Writing: Wool Eyed Never

by Beauchamp Art

Drinking for no
reason for
being sober
to the fact
or react
shunned ordinary
peopled places
me some
where on the out
siding with
interesting
momentary lapse
into clear
mindful of the next
thoughts for the day
break a leg
up and over
boarding party
conference call
out at three

am I coping
mechanism for
change your
ways that I can
helping out a
friendship
sailing
bystander
effected unexpectedly
warm for this time of
yearly recital
cause for
concerned friends
every day
broken
bottle it up
to the
toppling
off
cut
out
cast in a role
playing the same
old and getting older
than you by a few
more glass
eyes the door
stopping to see if any
one by one they drop
off to the
public
house with no
end in
sighting, false
stop
gap in the pave
meant something
elsewhere
now is the
window shut
up
tight
chest
painting familiar
faces the bar
bah blacksheep
of the family
futile
the floor
bored on my
back
aching for no
reasoning.
