Long Way Down

Long Way Down

You’re not ready
I know that
Want to say it but
It’s sticky here
Soles stretch every time
They leave the floor
Coaster doesn’t slide
When the server
Frisbees it to you
Drops the pint

I want to say it but
You’re not ready and
Won’t hear
You’ve been here long
Hours before me
Enough time already that
I know you’ll forget
You look right into my eyes
Beside you as I
Pull up, sit

You might be ready
I want to say it but
We’re not ready
I swallow it with
The slice of liquid
Chase it with
Your chatter
Our sorry words drown
Listen to them glug
Take the long way
