leaning against the bar
I watched that moment over and over

that moment when a man
takes a first sip of a well kept beer

it doesn't happen with spirits wine ot lager
women don't do it

they can be in full flow of conversation
but that first sip
                     stops everything
that sighing 'ah' of agreement - confirms all

if they are talking, and both are sipping
they always say 'where were we'

but if one is sipping and the other drinking lager
the pleb will say 'you were saying'
