Saturday Night – Shadorma (plus elfje and tilus)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASaturday Night

stale beer stink
peanuts and pretzels
honky tonk
football games
men sitting around at night
some shooting the breeze

wife at home worrying
is he drunk
fear

frustration
sogged down in strong beer
Saturday
pay-day blues
another week’s work over
no where else to go

black
his humor
as he leaves
his pals that night,
angry

swollen ire
inside emptiness
wife beater,
his fist flies
no way else to let off steam
police come too late
