The Corner Bar

A man walks into a bar
and throws all of his cards on the table
his best, his worst,
all of his moments 
and dreams
spilling out
with him in a pool of blood,
tears,
vomit, 
piss,
and a laugh,
and a stumble,
and a moment of angelic grace,
when he touches the sky
with a bit of fiery wit
and a story
that proves he's more of a man,
than he who walks out with a limp
because he hates his own leg,
and walks into a bar
to throw all of his cards on the table.

    I wonder, if perhaps he threw his cards in too soon...but on the other hand, how else this wonderful verse. Cynthia
