in public

the tv chatter
is boring
the radio chatter
is uninspiring
in the people’s chatter
is disturbing
i need a coffee,
a cigarette,
and a shot of tequila
or maybe rum
i can’t decide
if I’m a pirate
the conquistador
or a bum
maybe i’m just old
or like my friend said
but whatever, the sun is out
and the wind is on my back
the day is almost over
liquidating suppression
