Last Call

I poured my heart out everywhere
And now I’m an empty cup

Wondering what magic elixir
I should fill myself with next.

Or wondering, yes, I’m wondering
If maybe it is time, already,

To leave myself there dripping
Upside-down on the counter,

To walk away like closing time,
Hail a cab and call it a night.
