Ransacking

Ransacking my past,

Picking moments

that are fizzing

in the nooks

and

Crannies

of

my memory.

 

A

Nugget.

 

Sitting with Andy in Queen’s Park.

Outside the Glass Houses.

Him smoking,

Me,

just filling my mouth with

Smoke.

and teaching me

How to.

 

How to

Inhale.

 

Breathe-in

Hold.

Supress the cough.

Cough.

and

Again.

 

That was me at 17

 

And that was me for the next seven years.
