Mix Up

Some friends of mine were going to perform poetry and music one evening. Unfortunately, the bar they were going to perform in got closed down that day. They didn't find out until they got there and the door was locked. Just had to write about it. The situation also gave me a rare chance to combine poetry and basketball.

Mix Up

Amid the hustle and bustle
of basketball games,
the bar would offer
music with a poetry chaser.
An homage to the Doors and
reflections on "The End."
Alas, the end came
before the beginning.
There was only
one door through
which to access
this collaboration
and, to eveyone's surprise,
it remained locked.
The bar was closed,
not because of
a personal foul,
but due to
a simple violation.
