March 31, 2013

This bartender has your eyes.
This bartender at the Best Western
in the French Quarter smiles your toothy smile.
This bartender who made me a margarita and served it in the nicest glass.
Ty from Belize. Raised in New Orleans.
I could take him home easy and pretend he was you.
Fall in love. Pick up the story where you and I left off.
He'd be none the wiser.
Wondering why I treat him so well.
What did he do to deserve such a woman like me?
I just want to stare at him and look into your eyes
living once again.
