    dotsMaybe He’s Watching my Roaddots

    There aren’t too many places around here where
    Your can put hands to wood and hear the clink of dusty glasses
    Pulled off the highway, took a dirt path through the pine trees
    After three beers anyone gets to talking

    In my dream last night we sang a song, me and this stranger
    The first verse tumbled out of him like a coal-powered train
    He and the bartender turned towards me
    I opened my mouth, wasn’t sure what would come out
    But I sang the high chorus , my voice choked
    with whisky and reverence

    There are atheists in foxholes
    But god hides
    In the bottoms of bottles everywhere

      Great write! I love that you take us through the woods. I can see the dirt path through the pine trees, the dusty old bar. The guys who "get to talking". In my mind I've added wrinkled faces, trucker hats, and flannel shirts. And that line:

    "The first verse tumbled out of him like a coal-powered train"

    In my humble opinion, there is much more to this than the "one-liner (esque)" punch line that it ends with. It's all that builds up to it that makes it seem effortless.

    Anyway, like I said, great write!

      Gah, you are so good at those one-liner (esque) endings. Like, do you have a shamelessly self-promoting Instagram account where you make little pictures of your poems in typewriter font and post them with hashtags like #poetry?

    That sound super bitchy and sarcastic but I'm serious. Write a fucking book already.
