The men (ii)

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.
