TBT This is where I learned about Smoking...

TBT The Cocktail Lounge 
at the Penn Albert Hotel
where they used to set me
in the middle seat at the 
bar when I was four and 
serve me Roy Rogers while
the grown ups smoked and 
got sloshed. The drunk who
sat next to me powered down
martinis with so many green 
olives, I've never been able 
to eat them. He said they 
were his dinner. I also learned
to work the cigarette machine
so I could get cigarettes for 
my uncle. He was lazy.
