Bachelor Pad

BACHELOR PAD


£50 a week.

 

Intermittently,

Heat.

Water,

WC,

 

Fridge / freezer,

Bed,

Door,

False wall.

 

Disorderly,

Furnished cheaply,

Fish expiring

in a dilapidated corner.

 

Stereotypical art garret,

Clothes strewn,

Empty bottles,

Fags.

 

Draw the curtains

and block out the night.

Under artificial light,

rage against nothing

in a calming zone,

an ocean of freedom,

 

of clutter and contentment,

of overruled resentment

suppressed in support

of the greater good.

Communal living

is never easy,

 

but these are the days

I will always remember.


The trivialities,

the little things,

I will forget

and gloss over.
