Things I've Lost at the Sand Bar

Late night at the Sand Bar in Barra de Navidad, Jalisco, Mexico.

My friends,
On more than one occasion.

My budget,
I only came in for one beer.

My keys,
But they were from back home anyway

My stack
Of poker chips Sunday nights

My phone
Between the cushions

My jacket
Behind a chair

My heart
On more than one occasion.
