what’s a boy in Hove supposed to do?
i read a self-help book; now i think i’m screwed

and is a saturday night really included in this voucher code?
that schtick gets so old

and tears have no effect upon the shingle
saline waves and salt tears mingle

and why this temperature
so unprecedented for the time of year?
yet little fear here

i know you vape but here’s an ashtray
saw it and thought of you, for old time’s sake

why were those sunday night restaurants in the nineties
always housed within a railway arch beside the bins?

i do and don’t feel very different
to a younger self who’s never gonna listen

and when the time comes i know i won’t
be even in the slightest ready
enough now
steady on
