Myopic Fly In The World's Smallest Inn

The world’s smallest inn has an outhouse.
An oval mirror, a lake of cloud
broken by ropes of cobwebs
too thick to catch even the most myopic fly.
The day is a glass half-full of bronze beer.
The barman talks of gods. The laughter
confirms them.

  1. Intriguing. I was once in an inn which claimed to be the world's smallest (or at least I sat outside; there were 6 people there and it was full). But I forget now where it was.

    1. This one was The Smith's Arms, near Dorchester. It was a delightful, thatched place with whitewashed walls. Unfortunately, it's no longer, as far as I know, a pub. Anyway, thanks for popping in for a pint.

    1. 'Tis a good philosophy. The half empty approach never got me anywhere. Thanks for commenting, Kim.
