Off the Wagon

by Marc Carver

I start laughing as I walk into the coffee shop

and the woman who looks a bit like a man asks if I am alright.

Yea I say thought I saw something funny.

I didn’t tell her I thought I saw a dog with a condom on outside

she may have thought I was cracking up.

I waited for my coffee looking at all the women asking them in my head who wanted my seed.

They all looked a bit disgusted at me.

I had my coffee and walked out 

lots of women started to smile at me and I knew I was in trouble.

It normally goes this way when I stop drinking for a bit.

People give me hope that  suppose I don’t want 

So I went home fell asleep and hit the bottle that night 

On the wagon off the wagon what difference does it make.
