I can remember

His name.


Colin lived down the road from me in Glasgow.


I think he was adopted,

or, perhaps,

Some other mystique.


He always reminded me of the actor from the Man from Uncle – Ilya Kuryakin*


About his eyes

And hair.




I don’t know why,

I ended-up kicking him one day.


I had dog shit on my shoe.


Again, I don’t know why.


I can remember his green Parka

Smeared with poop.


Then, a short-time later,

His mum very pissed talking to my mum at our front door.


I don’t know what they said.

What can you say?
