he sidles up orders a beer

not one for me too

how y’doing?

not heard for a while


& we murmur some

bits of this lots of chat

nothing important just goss’

glossing over the important

so I hear you talk with Charlie?

& I know they don’t get on

yeah yeah I go y’know

he keeps in touch talks

calls now & then

& he doesn’t get it

too soon his stool is scraping

I gotta go stuff to do

keep in touch eh?

& he offers his hand

I take the limp pallid grip

be in touch he says

tho’ we both know

he never will

because I see him

as he is
