Down

Just takes time,
and some glasses of wine,
and some chairs
in the room.
Just takes space
to replace.

Just takes plates,
and a waiter who waits
in the light
of the flame.
Watching wax cry slowly
as the world is closing
down.

One salute,
and one more down the chute.
One more stand,
up to mark
one more joke
to revoke.

One more year,
been a good one I hear.
Just takes time
and some wine.
One more kiss to the sky
as the world is floating
by.
