man in the menzies pub

man in the menzies pub
wears minimum dress requirements
orders his drink
then sips
stares at the pressed tin walls
built by someone forgotten
painted too many times to be counted
looks into the bubble patterns in his beer
his fingertips imprint the frost
his dog waits outside
but his woman was long gone
counts the hours by the glass
