Thin,

Salt and pepper stubble,

Old

Leather boots,

Tanned faces

And darkened eyes

accustomed

To staring into the distance.

 

They talk of the weather

And

Gossip

About those not there;

 

Jennie,

She wasn’t looking too well on Monday,

Frankie,

Is he not late today?

Eddie,

One last pint.

 

Whirligig;

The only music is the wind

And the waves

Lapping on the pier.

Trying to understand the world, one emotion at a time.
