Brief Thoughts On New Year's Eve

Frozen rain splatters against the black asphalt.
Laughing boys sneer delightfully
As their firecrackers burst;
The night is dark and cold;
Everyone's out celebrating the new year.

How can time pass so fast
With so little effect on the mind?
Coke does taste better out of the little bottle.

Lebanon, Tennessee
December 31, 1969
