Todays That Never Made It

By George Gad Economou

Todays That Never Made It

another dawn approaches, I’m drunk and
sitting in the
dark, scribbling poems, wondering about
the crepuscular what ifs; what if, the ouzo in my
highball asks, Emily was alive? where would we
be? in a lakehouse, away from the
world, sequestered and happy? in a shooting
gallery, homeless junkies fighting with feral cats for a
piece of meat lying in a garbage can? is there a point in
pondering implausible scenarios? asks the beer from its
tall can. I drink them
both down, go for
another round.
