Sober in Bars (An Unplayed Symphony)

Bartender!
Another water,
because I can’t
drink tonight.

If I could,
I would have
played those
bottles behind
the bar like a
symphony.

I would have
conducted cocktail movements
like a drunk mozart.

I would have
scripted tales with
singles and doubles
that would
have brought tears to
the eyes of the
old drunks
in the booths.

But tonight
I’m 10 days sober
and looking to add
to that total.

So bartender,
another water.
