Poem ["The Beachwood Inn Has Collapsed!"]

Poem ["The Beachwood Inn has collapsed!"]
with apologies to Frank O'Hara

The Beachwood Inn has collapsed!
I was checking Accuweather and suddenly
it started raining or snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the traffic
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I see a text msg.:
THE BEACHWOOD INN HAS COLLAPSED!
there is snow tonight in Wicker Park
there is always rain in Illinois
I have been to lots of other bars
and acted perfectly disgraceful
and collapsed here and there but not like this
oh Beachwood we love you get up

From the Beachwood Slack channel:

Steve: Did a vehicle really run into the bar once?

Bob: Twice. Once in the back room of bar, the other in the practice space.

*

Tim: Wtf, I've had CNN on for at least 20 minutes and there's no mention of this story.

*

Tim: I'm heading over there late tonight to see if there are any pieces I can grab to go with my collection of Big Tony's rubble.

Tim: Maybe if I'm lucky I'll be crushed by debris like that guy who tried saving pieces of the old stock exchange.

Tim: In the basement I'll be looking for shrunken heads of regulars who mysteriously disappeared.

*

Mike: Cop car w/flashing lights on the scene.

Steve: Better get a bail fund for Tim going.
