stripped

as the light seeps out to deep blue
i buy things i do not need from a corner convenience shop
peanut butter sole intention
to surreptitiously spoon at cupboard door
two cars unload their male cargo
spilling into the first bed
and breakfast
of the street long strip
reindeer ears and jeers
next door three women
hens behind glass
identikit pink t-shirts
i can’t read the slogan through the hostel lace curtains

it is not late but it feels it
