Drunks 1 Sleep 0 by Blair Gaulton

Drunks 1 Sleep 0
Tiredness’ wave;
slowly floating me away.
Until drunks start bugling; as if it was day.
Now I am wide awake again.

Return of the Loud Ones by Blair Gaulton

Return of the Loud Ones
Voices wrinkle and crinkle air;
with their late night proclamations;
as they stagger around like disjointed mannequins.

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.
