The History of Art

By DS. Maolalai

standing with naggins,
discussing art, poems
modern literature
on a corner
in stonybatter
near the lilliput
press. I don’t know
what is different
about our
public drinking,
but something
we consider
is different: the history
of art. fallon says
a friend of his
is friends
with the owner. I think
of my bookshelves,
my printed piles
of poems.
drink beer
very long
from my can.
