Piano Bar Blues
Dizzy summer night
quenched with lager
her eyes dreamy
with piano bar blues
moving aside their empty glasses
his arm brushed hers
low lighting and soft cushions
made her head swim
they slipped away
into the moonlight
as they sauntered back
under the larch trees
along the water
his hands in his pockets
all the way home.
