A Night in May at Southern Belle’s

With rain and the calm
rumble of distant
thunder outside,
it is comforting
to be inside
this place among
human voices
and several drinks,
knowing that when
I leave a most
charming young lady
will smile and say
“Be careful”
then turn away
to chat with the man
who holds a crisp
new dollar bill
in his hand.
