Ayaz Daryl Nielsen- A Poem

I, myself and me-ku

a snockered fool yells
‘some more scotch! and some more beer!’
everyone looks at me

she leaves the room
her dog
bites my leg

peeing on fresh snow
trying to carve
your initials

thunder cracks
a young girl shrieks
or was it me?

a favorite pen
perched behind my ear
falls in the urinal

faulty mirror
this one reflects
last year’s fool

begging forgiveness
another mask
