Back to normal

Since you’ve been gone I’m back
to compulsively checking my horoscope
buy lottery tickets too
four quick-picks and one magic number,
while away an hour nitpicking
through the nail polish aisle at Target
to find a perfect sky blue color,
listened to my cherished Fats Waller
disc – Victor: 1935
“I’m going to sit right down
and write myself a letter
and make believe it came from you”
watch Maltese Falcon
late night movie on TCM
one more time
wishing detective Sam Spade
was my really good friend
he never took shit from anybody,
and two finger’s length
straight up Southern Comfort
in my favorite Picardie tumbler
within convenient reach.
