Watch the Men At Play

Drink a beer.
Light a cigarette.
Leer at teenagers as they return from school.
Drink another beer.
Or two.
Maybe even ten.
Smoke some barely rolled cigarettes.
Make lurid comments.
Vomit outside.
Find drunk friend.
Take advantage of her.
Stagger home.
Wake up with a hangover.

A month or two later …

Drink a beer.
Make that twelve.
Smoke a spliff.
Crack joke about miscarriage you caused.
Losing vision,
Hit floor
As my fist meets your face
and again
and again.


So, what do you think?
