Travelers Welcome

out here
looking at the stars
scattered across the sky
but I don’t know their names
if I had to I could find
the big and the little dipper
but I never took the time
to study the constellations
not the way other people have
for the most part
I just stayed inside
as much of the wine
and beer as I could
while the lovers held hands
and strolled together
into the darkness
I heard they made wishes
and sealed them with a kiss
they were hoping for something more
but I always felt better
after I’d been drinking
when I was drunk I felt like
I could float above the ground
I wonder where they are
