Le Film

Getting to the centre
One for'------'

Kids with soda’s the size
Of their heads (or bigger),
Bags of cow marrow
And mass produced chocolate.

I, too, used to enjoy
The movies
With my mother,
My classmates,

But now,
I see on average,
One a week,

And I smoke outside,

While the pairs and groups,
Pick prime seats.

I don’t eat
While watching,
Or talk,
Or check the time.

My phone gets switched off,

The screen's a place
To hide from outside.
