A mixture of reality and fantasy played out to the end....
The Morning After
A tiny theater where tiny boys
Bounce off padded walls as they drink silver wine
From the tiny tin cups.
The people keep coming
Despite your nonexistent efforts to stop them
The women smell good

won’t let you go
And their raucous whining
Wakens the house
And you’re forced to explain your presence
And your urgent desire
To escape undetected
Before the sun comes up
On a foggy October morning
In a small town that could be anywhere but
