Last Friday

dim bar
caught up in the buzz of the bar
I let the poison bring out the beast in me,
pour me another señora,
dim lights and dim-coloured jars of lager
amidst the smiles, movement
and laughter of otherwise
hard-grafters beautifully reducing
ourselves to dimwits to
turn down the dimmer switch of the
light that burns the eyes on
Monday mornings and rots the
fibre of the soul until
Friday evenings when click click
bang bang, we shoot down the demon
of drudgery and step outside of
the dungeon and out into the sky
that starts at our feet and carries on
up into the clouds and beyond the stars,
tonight I’m gonna be infinite too
as I cast my gaze over you
and gravitate towards your body and
struggle to keep my distance,
I let the poison bring out the beast in me
with my words slurring I’m ridiculous,
waking up the next morning
thinking that I’ve probably fucked it all up,
I said silly things, I got too touchy,
I pushed you away when I just
wanted you to love me.
