Friday 23rd June


In the back yard,
Drinking sweet & sticky with a rat,
Do you want ice with that?
I can talk German,
I talk to everyone,
To no one,
I clean ashtrays,
Do you have a light?

In walks a moon-eyed vibrating kid,
“I’m weird”
I say,
“No you’re not”
He looks confused,
Dancing on the wrong foot,

Me & the rat watch & wait,
The kid grinds to a halt,
Crunches gears,
Comes back at me,
“Why are you so calm?”
He starts to vibrate again,
Rocking from side-to-side,

Me & the rat suck our drinks up a straw,
Sit back,
Watching the world dance
