II. I’ll have a Revolution
Forty beers on tap. Forty. How could I
even start to choose my partner in crime?
I’ll drink them like my children: I will try
to treat them all equally, one at a time.
The Blackhawks scored again. The blonde girl screams
a pitch so high and loud, puppies fall dead.
“Oh my God, they’re my favorite fucking team!”
I kept on drinking, staring straight ahead.
Damn. The bartender looks like Megan Fox,
and like a hound, I followed IPA,
two fingers in the air and awkward gawks…
Maybe, she… nope. Definitely not gay.
No heroes or Anti-Heroes dwell here.
Just awkwardness and forty fucking beers.
