naïve, bashful, hungry, rash
moth to a candle

Night Words After The Diner

The whisky went straight to my legs

my eyes, my arms, my tongue

I was experiencing things differently

Felt Earth spinning off its axis

It became a place I did not know

Did I need more drinking practice?

n.b. Night photo was taken to capture the empty street scene, but it came out weird, with evidence of existence of the Yeti…alive and well in East Anglia. It is certainly cold enough in Norfolk for Yeti.

Pubs now open in England, outside drinking only. Short rhyme prompted by photo. No pubs were visited during the making of this moving picture.

grey’s quite beautiful
