A Few Kisses

Like the book
She came with me
On a train
Through the hills
In her bed
I awakened
Curtains drawn
Blackish sky

And they told us we were decent
They forgot they spoke to monsters

Come with me
I’ll be gentle
Waste my time
Waste my time

And they told us we were decent
Fifty quid for a few kisses
What’s it like?
A few kisses
Curtains drawn
Sound asleep

And our fathers and our uncles
Ran through town like fevered cattle
Took the women in the doorways
No-one questioned ageless law
