Beer Party Night

you are drunk

and I’m intoxicated

no one is around

showing us the way home

from You Are Drunk by Rumi

• • • • • • • • • •

after midnight

party could go til dawn

music too loud

bags of chips empty

clutter of can and bottle

left in hallways

people still standing

and laughing in doorways

lost your balance

you are drunk

• • • • • • • • • •

find another beer

one of those hoppy ones

from a craft brewery

keg is gone

more alcohol needed

have to pee

don’t throw up

or fall down the stairs

it is almost morning

and I’m intoxicated

• • • • • • • • • •

all the lights are out

couples making out

sound of the surf on rocks

some skinny dipping


sobering up

one step at a time

walk the beach

under a full moon

no one is around

• • • • • • • • • •


we wait for sunrise

feel the tide recede

taking the night away

it moves the sand

around our legs

our backs and

off in the distance

a lighthouse beacon

showing us the way home
