a pub light burns

a light burns on the edge
of the horizon
pulling me in
like a fishing line
to scatter letters on a screen
connected by wires and lines
across the seas and miles

I find my way and park down
the street, and walk in,
and find a seat
and the words taste good
and I like the wine
in the pub…
hand me a crab leg, please.


Today I’m joining a new poetry community, dVerse, and today I say Welcome, dVerse Poets Pub! Looking forward to the journey!
