Lisa needs to lay off the sauce

Lisa's vodka voice
calls from outside,
later than late, when
the stars have shut down 
for the night, refusing 
boozer-sight that prevents 
one from tripping.

Screech owl's search light,
a Full-Sturgeon moon,
is still much too dark, if inebriated
to distinguish which cement walls 
are most likely to attack.

Two eves past, her 
horse auditioned, 
in the living room.
He too loves a good

Excuse me, for I hear
her knock of desperation
at the door. As for Duke,
the horse; not to worry,
he can hold his own beer.

    It was that of a drunken sailor's song at the time I wrote this. She was outside - beer inside - I was on the computer on dry writing this poem with a wall separating us as she's pounding on door. True story- even the horse.
