Texas Honky Tonk   4 comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATexas Honky Tonk — Image by kenne

It’s early in the evening,
over an hour before the band begins
playing Texas Two Step music.

Most of the chairs are empty
as only few guys have arrived,
drinking beer and sharing conquests,

A barroom strength building
exercise in preparation
for dancing — quick, quick,

slow, slow,
quick, quick,
slow, slow…
