timmy,

Wonderful atmosphere. Mood.

Been there many times in my many travels for work.

It instantly elicits/rekindles/stimulates/personalizes many more visuals and sounds and smells and FEELINGS than you mention. One major sign of a really good poem.

I can smell the soft scent of my Scotch on the rocks.

Thanks,

IMR



COMMENT ON "NOT THE BEST OF FRIENDS" BELOW

timmy,

That's the way life is.

Beautifully and painfully captured.

To say, "I'm leaving" is bad - more than enough to hear.

To also say on your 50th Anniversary, "I've found somebody new" is a sucker punch to the soul.

"almost a look of grace

upon her face"

UGH!

Best,

IMR
