Ghost Of Holiday Past
by Mark Antony Rossi
I just escaped from a holiday party terrorists decided wasn’t worth a bullet.
I needed some air from the fake stench of importance.
I needed a glass of Chilean red wine and a smart phone with a full battery.
I needed an intervention to take back my balls locked in my wife’s big purse.
But instead I ran to the door like a homeless whore hoping to never see these boring bingo players again.
