‘Are you still watching.. ?’ / Last Seen

Cocktails by the harbour,

forgotten wine glasses

waltzing to off-beat music;

Split-seconds

Backlit by the bedroom lights of a city

Clutching one another

Whispering at the tidings

Standing at the abyss;

/

Electric double-ticks

lonely coffees

shattered wine glasses

an abandoned coat

permanently-loaned books

Smothered windows

morning heart
