The Zoo



They silently sit
Nursing their drinks
Mending their broken souls
Trying to remember what it is to be a human

Prisoners, locked in their useless dreams


***

The weekly challenge

for IF is

the Zoo

We can check out any time we like,
but we can never leave...

SusuPetal said...

Don't know about the originality, but if you like it, Forever young, that's good.

Hmmm. This makes me remember some things I'd like to forget. Now I like to have a drink for fun and relaxation. Who's pouring? :D

SusuPetal said...

This drink's on me, Mick.

My zoo is a little Irish pub a few blocks away from my place. My zoo-keeper is a charming bartender named Drew, a 21st century hippie. In addition to listening to people pouring out their hearts and souls, he also introduces people to good local bands they should check out.

Your zoo sounds a nice one, not at all like the places I had in mind, Kenneth!
