### Waiting in an Empty Tavern

Recently I was prompted to write a "bar napkin poem."

I happened to be in a bar at the time and asked the bartender for a pen and a napkin. He gave me a pen and a strip of receipt paper.

Good enough, I suppose.

Here's a picture of what I quickly scratched (minus the lame final line, which I've hidden behind the fold). Below is the re-written result.

**Waiting in an Empty Tavern**

Three of us

Waiting

Glasses half full

In an empty tavern

Wondering

If she will walk through the door

Will we even recognizer her

If she does
