“another scotch and water”
“another beer for me”
the bartender goes about
fixing the drinks
a college kid
or a college drop out
probably with some
new age folk
or alternative sounding band
waiting for that
talent scout to come
to bum fuck America
to discover him
serving drinks
to the wasted
ambition of patrons
“the thing is Aquarians
are all the same”
he sips at his drink
I take a big gulp of my beer
I must have heard the story
a thousand and one times before
“they are all the same, they make
drama to just
have something to bitch at”
“fuck yeah, I dealt with it
for eleven years”
“then nine more at that
shit hole job running that worn out
press for the biggest Aquarian dick of all”
“that’s true”
“fuck yeah its true”
I take another gulp
“I’m telling you a bad
day at the loading docks is a hell
of a lot better then a good
day running that fucking press”
“you better believe it”
“so where are you working now”
“another sign shop”
“that’s good you deserve it”
what I deserve is silence
“they treating you good”
“so far”
“your boss ain’t an Aquarian
is he”
“don’t know”
“you should find out”
“he’s got a nice piece
for a wife”
“I remember this time
back in Cali. San Bernardino
or was it Long Beach
can’t remember wait it was
San Bernardino”
“boss’s wife was beautiful
long legs and a good chest
but it was those legs”
“what time is it”
“what time you got”
“oh ahhhh 6:30”
“well I got to go”
“you sure”
“alright, I got the drinks”
I sucked the last drop
and headed for the door
once I got outside I crossed
the street and got some smokes
and a 12 pack of beer
finally I had my silence
best not to waste it
and headed to my
one room hole in the wall
