hippie Michael Caine
Clive Owen with a hip flask
tries strawberry cough

world has gone to shit
immigrants are scapegoated

an apt extinction

a dodgy friendship
ensnared by his loyalties
missteps and hard knocks

an interest in law
interferes with his calling
this hold’em genius

that ace could not have helped him
he flops a nut straight

momentarily
wandering in vast spaces
a face, in close-up

momentarily
they speak, digress, turn corners
romance and friction

~

momentarily
we breathe, movement and gesture
time, going sideways
