Mainstream Student Partying


Mea culpa – owing to over-exuberant acquaintance with seasonal vino I submitted an early rough draft of this piece – rather than edit it on the page and render subsequent comments otiose I deleted that version. Enjoy!


a boiling scrum of raucous

tarty boys and tattooed girls

all wearing flesh-revealing

fishnet tights for ‘Carnage Nite’ –


arching the ‘white noise’ clamour

for ‘something we can dance to’

coke-dust nostrils snorted clear

Rizlas cursed as they unglue,


somebody is crying.
