Sat on the wooden tables at my local pub.
two bottles of wine in and this is starting to get fun.
we ask well-timed questions and hold eye contact just a little too long.

you read me some of your poetry and ask about my mum. cigarettes are smoked just to lean in for a spark.

we speak about art and debate the important stuff. there’s a dance and a laugh before you ask me ‘is this where it all starts?’
