Drinking alone, curtains drawn… he smiled.
His tooth fell out. He sighed.
Observing, he felt powerful. She didn’t.
Numb. She pulled her pants up.
Cynical drunks leered on street corners.
Like apes they strutted, seeking trouble.
“Let’s dance!” The relationship ended there.
She popped her gum. He winced.
“I’m a writer.” He lied easily.
His bald spot stole the show.
Going home alone. The night disappointed.
Rolling hips drew his attention. Fatally.
Parodying youth did him no favours.
“Guilt don’t tell time” He said.
