A Funny Thing That Happened

by Norman Clayton

A funny thing that happened
on the way to this poem.
It got hungover. and I
didn’t even know it drank
strong spirits
Poems are like that, with their
telling of deep dark secrets like
drunks to bartenders late at night.
I think good poems should always be
written to bartenders but then I
don’t drink anymore.
So this poem is not really
about hanging out the wash.
That dries out too, like me,
like this poem which is starting
to give me the dry heaves.
