We see our breaths
Climbing up the orange tinted night sky
As we engage in our ritual story telling
Bottle in hand
Cigarette in mouth
Conjuring up ancient victories
Of our youth
All take their turn
Until drink runs dry
Or body hits floor
As the morning light
Erases the past.

nice. brings back memories of hitting floors and staring into morning lights. oh how I dug my brew and butts. on occasion I still enjoy a brew. but ne'er the latter. i'd have to be nuts to do dat!
