REAR VIEW MIRROR

 

Leaning against the wall; with ants

Crawling about on the ground

I see two Asian guys get into a car
and drive off into the Wild West

I look in the rear view mirror

of another car only to see Baudelaire

saying, “One must always be drunk.”

but all I got is a Diet Coke

and a screaming hangover from last night

that even 6 aspirin couln’t cure

An ant crawls up to my foot

so I move it from his path

There’s only 10 minutes left to lunch

A quick beer would be nice

but I look up at the rear view mirror

and see that Baudelaire is gone
