A Mile

Ashley Amigoni

In a Pub downtown
No, two blocks ago
There were men, two
And conversation that flowed
But not from my lips
Or eyes or from hands
From their partners persuasion
And a joke over a band
That I made play
But now staring out
The light and street
I must move about
Find more to do
Because this Pub, two
Blocks far from misery
Feeling bored from you
