daily news

there is an ancient korean man
who is missing a leg and
he’s cleaning up on the horses
the patron is behind the counter
drinking rosé and sneaking a fag
the waitress makes small talk
even with me and my ridiculous accent
and i realize i love this place
and my place in it
i’ve been thinking about you for days
afraid to say that i want you, need you
to validate my existence
sometimes i think that this isn’t poetry
just confession, illumination
of the human soul if such a thing there is
