I used ter

I used ter’ave one of these
he mumbles
as he stands over my bike
he doesn’t say model
year or when
he’s all tribal tattoos
half shaven head
soft shoes & clothing
thankfully he doesn’t ask
to sit on it
he’s joined by his baby momma
same soft clothes n shoes
forcing a burger in with both hands
he gets wistful now
remember me when I had?
nods at my bike
before the kids
when I was working at X
good money those days eh?
any grief I had with him gone
I’ve known those stark choices
thankfully I made other
he nods again
have a good ride mate
& is gone
& you wonder
