poem of the day 10.12.12

fundamentals of
wine store management

he prided himself
on a glass room full of rare
and expensive wines
great burgundies
and that over-rated blend
done by mondavi and rothschild
that no one in the rust belt
could afford to buy
except for hockey players and canadian rock stars
only he could never rectify
the fact that his BMW was paid for
on the backs of unemployed men
buying scotch in plastic bottles
and lonely secretaries
in white socks and athletic shoes
pushing rickety carts through his store
stocking up on magnum bottles
of white wine
for another lonely weekend
of reruns
that they were too busy to watch
during the long and exhausting work week.
