Poetry Month / “Neon buzzing”

Budweiser neon buzzing,

in the barroom window above

with loose coins collected

in a Chevy pickup ashtray

and trying to count

the number of streetlights

between you and home.


This piece is included in my book, “Country Songs and Backroad Love Notes” – available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle:
