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.
