pattern

the pattern set in

right from the off

that first bottled beer

me & kevin

sucking on Newcastle browns

stolen from the sports club

our backs against the wall

patch of open grass

behind the old folks home

that first sip

tasting like shit

before the buzz came on

then suddenly

adults made sense

all the crazy shit they did

& knowing now

that we’d taken the step

we would become

like them
