ECONOMIC REALITY

 

“Hey man,”

the voice calls out

“why you drinking that cheap beer?”

 

“called economic reality”

I respond icily

sipping a Yuengling Porter

 

“That’s too bad.

Want an Anchor Steam?”

 

“Sure thing.”

 

That’s one good thing

about being a poet

You always bring out

the generosity in other people

 

and there are

certainly times

when I would be lost

without it

 

but sipping on

the Anchor Steam

I try not to brood

too much on it
