An Evening of Beer and Pool

Crack! Pool balls scatter
As the pockets claim two balls
The first round arrives

  1. I like this one! Maybe it’s cuz it reminds me of an old poem I wrote…had to dig this one up:

    Eight Ball

    Just the sound of it eases me,
    the click-clack of the rack, the roll
    of the stick over felt to make sure
    it’s straight, the thud of the break and
    the sink of the balls. Each shot a
    perfect course, each measure, each line.
    Just the motion of it thrills me
    massés and breaks and sweet straight shots.

    Of course, that’s not beer talk (hangs head).
