I Would Put It Down by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

my beer
comes to the table
under escort

my beer
must be someone important
to have a security
detail like

carried on a tray
like John the Baptist’s

my beer is a foaming
rabid beast among other
foaming rabid beasts

I would put it down,
but I can’t stop picking
it up

when I order another,
my beer must be gone
or it will grow jealous

one beer at a time fellas,
that is the secret.
