I shouldn’t have left school early,
I was okay, yes my head was cloudy
but I should have stayed, toughed it out,
for that guy on the tram made my
soul shiver; he kept staring,
it was an angry belligerent stare
that made me sweat, it was dangerous,
It was Knut Hamsun in ‘Hunger’ scary.
I got up and he said , ‘I want you,
I want to eat you’, it was the
goddamn second bottle of wine
that bought me here and bought
him there; he reminded me
of a Rottweiler I met while
walking a few years back
He wanted to eat me too.
