Asleep on the Tracks by Blair Gaulton

Asleep on the Tracks
Asleep in the middle of the tracks
driver sees just in time
stops train
gets out
wakes him up
drunkenly staggers away
driver reports with a quip
he thought he was at home in bed
shaking his head.
all laughing
we resume our trip.

The Drunk and the Pylon by Blair Gaulton

The Drunk and the Pylon
Staggering around
falling near a pylon
hauls it close to cuddle
starts singing a frank sinatra song
decides it is a megaphone instead
People move away in dread
not a bad voice
just a little loud
after a few lines
falls asleep.
