NaPoWriMo #10 - On a birthday night out
On a birthday night out
Balloons and a short-stemmed daffodil
someone had rescued on the way, its head
lying loved between the pint glasses. A bunch of cards
propped on the tables and a glass of wine.
Some empty chairs. Some low-level music in a shared venue.
More than one conversation about your nipples.
You said you know who your friends are
on a birthday night out and I knew what you meant.
