all i want

so what am I looking for?
what do I want out of life?

just a good book, not too pretentious
a bar with low lighting that plays good music
and a witty bartender

just a warm body to put my mouth on
at the end of the night
or, if not, then a warm bottle instead

I just want a sunny day with a little breeze
jeans that will fit me for the rest of my life
a permanent vacation from my day job

no more stupid questions, like
“What’s up?” or “How’s it going?”
“Did you vote?” or “How about that game?”

I just want to be payed
and layed
and left alone
