Whatever you have is fine.

“Can I have a white russian, please?”
“No, you can’t. We don’t serve vodka
you should know that, you work here.
Who do you think you are, anyways?”
She smirks at me, and I blush,
looking sideways
I have been put in my place
so many times
over the last few days
my head is spinning
“Ok, well, just give me
whatever’s on tap, then, or gin.”
“What’s the magic word?”
“I’ll tip you ten dollars
if you get it real quick.”
“Ok, sweetheart, you’re in.”
i steal a glance
and catch her grinning
i have to laugh a little bit
i’ll play the game
but i’m not winning
i just really need a drink.
