Alfred Hotel, pt. 1

The end, the end, the end, the end
meet me at the Alfred
the gutter will do.

We can’t repay our real debts,
but with drink & a nod
we settle the smalls
and forget the rest.

You found me sleeping in the park
still waiting for my chance to talk
I surrender, I surrender
in the end, I knew I would.

    I like this! It’s lilting, lop-sided and the first stanza is a scorcher!
