Rhetoric

another night
& another drink
& another dance of tongue in cheek
words these walls,
this chair,
and of course that set of stairs
has heard before….
a thousand times?
(maybe more)
so how?
to say the things we mean to say
when meaning is tired
& saying
is rhetoric
& half a cigar smoked
is half an answer never gave
