After Last Call

It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub (which has FINALLY reopened!) and it’s once again time to create a 44-word poem using the word (or some form thereof) JUKE.

Thanks to Brian Miller, a Pub co-founder, for helping celebrate a decade’s worth of Pub Fun and supplying the cool prompt.

After Last Call (Acrostic)

Just before Closing Time, seriously
Under the influence but craving one last
Knock-yer-socks-off tune, he finds
Everything he’s ever needed
Just two quick clicks away
On the antique glitterbox
In the corner of the bar.
Nobody’s there to share the tune:
Time stands still.

  1. I imagine he can just about smell and taste the moment that the song is taking him back to…and that he doesnt care too much that he is alone in the moment…nor does he feel it.

    Smiles.

  2. Love me an acrostic, and this one is snazzy, beyond cool. If you would have added a rhyme scheme it would have been a triple threat.

  3. Well done, Ron.! This acrostic flows so naturally–not forced at all– and I can so imagine that scene. (In my mind, time literally stops because it’s the Twilight Zone.) 😀
