It’s just after eleven on Boxing night. The

pubs are spilling out. I’m with Simmo on

a rooftop overlooking town. There’s lights

below us and lots of them are glowing green.

The pharmacy, the all-night garage. The

snooker-hall sign. The crucifix. The whole

horizon an iridescent blur. Another year gone

and I’m thinking about dying again, though

not in a morbid way; I’ve had too much to

drink and I can hear music from a nearby bar.

I’m trying to sing but I can’t express how

I feel through the song. Then suddenly the

feeling escapes me. I feel it leave my body.

And Simmo’s laughing ‘cause there’s a tear

on my cheek. And then I realise, and start

laughing too. It’s like I’ve woken up. After

that I decide I have to make him flinch for

a while with a few jabs. So he remembers

who’s boss.
