Friday Night at Hammy’s

By John Grey


Hockey on one screen,

news on another,

jukebox belting out

rock and roll’s last stand

and the chatter of workers

on a Friday night –

the wings

from many a chicken devoured,

the beer frothing like heads –

it’s beginning

to snow,

a quiet fall,

piling on the bar,

sound-proofing the air outside.


John Grey is an Australian poet and U.S. resident. He was recently published in the Homestead Review, Harpur Palate and Columbia Review with work forthcoming in the Roanoke Review, the Hawaii Review, and North Dakota Quarterly.
