After the Concert

After the Concert

by Bobby Sidna Hart

Billy Joel
at the Coliseum
“A bottle of red
A bottle of white”
Standing ovation
Obliging encore
Parking lot traffic
Now for pancakes
at midnight
Laughing, buzzed
“Wasn’t he great!”
Coffee refills
It’s two a.m.
Drive to the edge
of Lover’s Leap
Remember when?
We chuckle
Did Billy Joel see
how old we’ve become?
