DISGUST ON THE HALF-SHELL

 

by Robert Beveridge

 

 

 

So hot outside you sweat nostalgia

over frosted mugs of gin. The bartender

has picked up his novel again, grunts

encouragement when you pause. You notice

he is reading Proust, and so you continue.

What possessed you to tell the tale

of the loss of your virginity

you will never know. All of your junior-high

comrades will hate you for this,

even if it was an accident.
