This Is Over Drinks

This is over drinks. Laconic. “Hello Benno”. We sat for a time. Eyes traced the rims of glasses and the ice melts cascade into last sips. The ice shifts with a slow rhythmic kerplunk and plink. Inaudible but real. “This drink is smooth.” The stomach growls, though, and sours despite words. “This drink was smooth. Goodbye Benno.”
