If You Buy Me A Drink…
If you buy me a drink, I would not ask you
where you go, from where you are,
if you just get out of jail,
if your wife is pretty
or if you don’t have one,
if you are dawdling alone with a broken heart.
If you buy me a drink, I will say nothing to you,
I will contemplate you
We will share a few words
while keeping our distance
We will empty our glasses
and I will leave with a little of you to fill my silence.
