Eavesdropping

Late on Line 9
Shitty day outside
Two bums, homeless
A man and a woman
Drunk and not worried
“When I was 19
We had a drink called
The Coffin” she says
“The Coffin” he asks
“Yeah, we would take all
The alcohol in the house
Mix it together, whatever
And get fucked up”
“Yeah” he says
They have cans of
Hell beer in hands
She looks 60
All puffed up and dirty
She’s 35
Maybe
“I don’t remember
When I was 19” he says
