White Ending

It is a good night
with a strong breeze
and a consistent ache
within bone.
You have dirt under nails
and an experience
of earned exhaustion.

The first drink will be sweet
and the eighth will be sloppy
but each one shall be absorbed
and enjoyed
and everything seems righteous
and just.
It is a good night
after a good evening
with the better teams
winning the proper awards.
You know you shall sleep like the dead
and awaken
with new hills to climb.

It may not be easy
or always pleasurable
but it’s a good life
if you don’t weaken
and it’s yours.
Good night.
