Watering Hole

October 18, 2017 Kirk

Let’s not use the term dive bar anymore.

May I suggest neighborhood bar or local joint.

Watering hole.


There’s still a jukebox against the wall

Maybe some pull tabs or peanuts

being eaten by folks not so different from you

getting through another day like a wildebeest on the serengeti.


What you call a dive

is someone’s surrogate family.

Someone’s watering hole.
