at the bar
after the show
feelin' ornery
rather be home
drinking alone
nothing I drink there
so the bar it is
i'd picked up residue
from the negative
energy around me
two good friends
in bad bad moods
eventually had some
good conversation
then remembered
a rumor
a rumor
i heard
a rumor
i tend to believe
a rumor
that if true
means a friend
has actively worked
against me
against my interests
against my artistic life
and then i realized
it was not just
residual badness
through my night
but the idea of
betrayal and
and with my head
in that vodka filled
and angry place
i proceeded to
let my hostility spill out

if any splashed on ya,
i apologize.
