I like to watch the ones who work
When I drink alone
in public;
I like to see their industry and purpose
and that little bit of distain for the Saturday night crowds

I like to see in their posture,
their movement,
their eyes,
the stories they tell themselves;
Of striving,
of who they are
and are becoming

Do they still use terms like
‘The skulls’, ‘The meat’, ‘The prey’;
Do they think that way at all?
Was that just me?
