Autumn Leaves

by Ralph Anthony Casillas

Sorry Im late.
Ill have what he's is having, but on the rocks if you dont mind.
I missed you Nate.
I left him lonely for some guy up state.
I had forgotten how handsome he was.
He placed his finger across his martini glass,
A movement I remember quite well. He said
Do you want to go somewhere quiet
I handed the bartender some cash.
Keep the change.
I grabbed his hand and said,
Goodbye sir, have a good autumn.
