Bored Bartender Haiku

So I was bartending a wedding tonight, and it was boring, though not unproductive. Enjoy:

Stand behind bottles
cork flakes floating in the wine
brush fruit flies away.

*

Bubble toast unburnt
transatlantic applause, pause:
corkscrew, pigtail, cake.

*

Time of the fruit fly
kept by the bartender’s hand
watching plastic dry.

*

Beware of squirrels
dumpster ninjas raiding rinds
from buffet snack line.

*

In public houses
ghosts avoid the memory
collectors’ snapshots.
