You haunt me
as if I am sitting in an empty bar
just me
and the stale smell
of cigarettes and beer
but I wouldn't
be alone at all

With my eyes closed
I'd feel the ghosts of
Friday night lingering
by the jukebox,
arguing about a woman
in the corner,
or dancing round and round
next to the pool table.
when I opened my eyes
I would be alone again
just me and the stale air
and a bunch of worn down
old bar stools.

With sigh I'd get up and leave
stopping at the jukebox
for a moment
to ask
the specter
of an older woman
to play
some Pink Floyd

She'd ask me for a dollar and
I would give it to her
but if she asked me to buy her another drink
I would tell her she'd had enough
to go home and quit looking for
what you need in places
you know it can't be found
and then she probably wouldn't play any
Pink Floyd at all.....
