Pints of beer were consumed on the promenade,
Opportunities for selfies arose. I took none.
Bold row of white benches by the sea,
And this everlasting life in the night that
Is just about to end.*
Forget, forgive, dismantle your mind,
Procure the external, all else unwind.
Rewind, rethink, calculate and miss,
The lights of a foreign metropolis thousand
Miles away right here in our midst.
Forgive and forget, I need to take a piss.
