couch, coffee, and cigarettes

once again i am on another uncomfortable orange couch
and the tv is my only salvation although
it randomly shuts off as if possessed by demons
my ennui is almost more than i can bear
coffee and cigarettes
check the computer
more coffee and cigarettes
i want a dingy hole in the wall
smoke filled with old men playing pool
and talking about their empty lives and ugly wives
perhaps i can brighten the bar with my smile
like in the wild days and
have half my drinks on the house
but that is all over
for the better i think
no more drunken one night stands
doing the walk of shame at 5am still wasted
needing a scalding shower and a cool pillow
now it’s just the couch, coffee, and cigarettes
