billiards

do you remember

when pool halls felt

more like home?

betting on billiards

was our game

playing off each other

placing me front page

me, a novice

nine ball newbie

scratch and shoot

were all I knew

and you, a shark

sweeping the table

taking the cash

making our daily

for french fries

and milkshakes

to fulfill midnight munchies

I was your front

you were my everything

when did we fall off

and find ourselves

behind the eight ball
