Poems / Poems about Bars / Poetry / Sonnets / Writing in Bars

dedicated to Mike Thomas

I wrote this poem several years ago … not one of my best but it mentions a very good friend of mine, Mike Thomas.  If you see him today, tell him “Hello” & buy him a coffee.  He’s one of the best guys in the world.

(sonnet written at checker’s)

3 toms & a jake sitting at the bar
mid-afternoon at checker’s on friday
arguing about who putted under par
& if our nation is going the right way.
mike thomas is tending bar & singing
dirty lyrics to the songs we all know.
telling jokes & laughing as he’s bringing
drinks to all of us. he’s drinking his joe.
such a nice friday afternoon, drinking.
listening to conversations around me,
writing a little bit & thinking.
once in a while getting up to pee.
it’s a nice place to sit & have a beer.
i have to say that i do like it here.
