The Art of Tetman Callis Poems copulating on a bar

copulating on a bar

copulating on a bar in a nightclub after closing time

those little wet rings of condensation and spillage from drinks
are cold and sticky and stainy sometimes and often smell bad

the bar is hard on the knees and the butt and back
there’s no place to put your heels
no place to dig in your toes
no pillows to be found in the barroom

the bar is slick
falling bodies hit the barroom floor, sometimes breaking bones
