just like heaven
tears apart the sky of the bar as
he smiles all sheepishly
under his porkpie hat

looking down at the darkness of the floor
he grabs his transparent last straw and takes a sip
of his vodka and diet
saying
you know i used to back up drum for
the cure

my raised eyebrow responds
sure you did lambchop

see my matching bracelets
i’m wonder woman
and tonight
you won’t be pounding me
