1979

An island sky.
A half finished fragment.
Hit me now
and I’ll end your life forever.

Hang out the answers
It’s Nineteen Seventy Nine.
In the Cyprus Tavern
In Manchester.

Two Tone Tonic
and speed.
And alcohol,
and a bust up on the dance floor.

Life as it was lived
at the age of nineteen.
In Manchester.
In Nineteen Seventy Nine.
