Leon Russell by Frank Reardon

All I want
to do
is go to the worst
bar in town,
play Leon Russell
on the juke,
and watch
you dance
in between
the shadows
of my forgotten
words, but, shit,
I didn’t
know it was going
to take us
smashing beer
bottles
on the bar
and pointing
them at one
another
so we could find
the exact change
hidden
underneath
a smile.
