Jailhouse Rock plays loudly

you have had too much to drink
you can’t stand up on your own
you hold yourself up by placing
your forehead against the wall
you spilled your drink
you can’t get your cigarette to your lips
you try very hard
your right leg is balancing your body
your left leg though,
your left leg is doing a Fred Astaire routine

heel, toe, toe, toe, heel, slide…
remarkably on beat
with the rhythm of Elvis…

there are some truly wondrous things
in the world.
