"Me or Them?" by Keith Landrum

people are always 

asking me to go 


out to a restaurant or 

to a birthday party or 

to the movies or

to AA

or to a church

or to a jail

or to a hospital

or to the morgue


and I can't

figure out

who I should




"All of It" by Keith Landrum


it took 

a couple 

of beers

to remind me 


that I could drink

all of them


all I wanted


it was Friday

and I deserved 

the Saturday


I was about

to receive 


I deserved it


all of it
