at what point does the night out really begin

at what point does the night out really begin
By RK Wallace
it’s a perpetual struggle to find
any point for it at all
other than an excuse
not to stand still
and maybe that’s why we perpetually drink
and dance
to keep on
moving
or to numb out
the pain of not moving
and having to watch
the rest of them move
and more so
to numb out the reflection
of yourself
that you see
in that mass blob
of humanity
all waving their hands
like they just don’t care

  1. great ending. i’ve never asked myself this question, but for some reason i think i should have. thanks for saving me the time and writing a good poem concerning the idea.
