No One Can Name the President, but they All Know the Landlord by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Loneliness
has a funny way
of getting together
around the bottle
and the flame
in small dustbowl rooms
with hot plates for
yachts
I have met many strange men
this way
and a few women
also
almost never sex,
just the chain smoking unfortunate
wine soaked company
of others.
