aroused from slumber
implausible bedfellows
disturbed rookery

strange places are still open
just cocktails or beer

n.b. One of those past midnight hideaways that seems a bit strange at first, but that is frequented by reassuringly normal people, (even though I say it myself). Worth staying up to discover. Bar Garlochi, if you’re ever in Seville.

on time

imagine a scene
night club, four decades ago
we barely adults
our language music
dancing, laughter, eye contact
all and nothing said
