Two Poems by Brian Alan Ellis

How I apologize to whoever I drank heavily with the night before

 

Sorry

clap

I

clap

Made

clap

You

clap

Listen

To

clap

All

clap

That

clap

Emo

 

 

I may or may not be the Windows 95 of useless trivia knowledge

 

My biggest talent is sitting alone

in the corner of the bar and

correctly answering

the group of people nearby

who are arguing about

what the name of the artist

and/or song

currently being played on the jukebox is,

and then letting them use my lighter.
