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.
