Pleather & Whiskey

 
A pleather chair 


sheds dead office skin 


synthetic black leaves scatter 


swept by dry register winds 


a dust bowl of aluminum oxide


scratches where vinyl wheels


wear dusty wagon trails


travelling a laminate dessert


an absent old rhythm


scrawled on a sticky note


curls in loving neglect


next to a Remington Rand


a brown cigar sacrifices


an earthy spiced aroma


mellowing a warm palate


of Irish whiskey and ice
