My Attention Span

the way you shuffle the cards
amuses me for a few moments

i can tell when you don’t like the way they may begin to bend,
so you place the cards facing the other way,
and shuffle and shuffle
until you don’t like the way they begin to bend, so you turn the cards over
and shuffle and shuffle –
this continues longer than my attention span

in the corner of the room, my sights focus on the lit sign on the wall near the men’s room
i blinks yellow-glow beer pouring from the bottle
to the broken frosty mug laying in yellow-glow pieces on the floor
