back when they were in high school,
cody caught the bus further than anyone else,
to a line of run-down tenements
lining the base of the hills like ants.

it was the autumn of twenty-sixteen
when he plucked up the courage to take her somewhere personal.
he held her hand tight as they got off the seventy-one c.

"i don't even know why i brought you here," he said,
"this place is a shithole."
he kicked an empty coke can beside him as he walked.
goodness knows where it had been.

he seemed to have forgotten she'd grown up in
a place called shawland town,
a suburb of sixties-born buildings
amist a ground that was grey, not green.
the skies reeked of inner surburbia.

she looked around with new-found eyes.
there were so many things she wished to say,
but the only one that came out of her mind was,
"it stinks."

there was the mandatory giggle after that.

she knew boys wanted a shawland girl,
boys like the ones she met, boys maybe like cody.
and she wanted to finally fit those shoes herself,
those pretty pink birdfeet shoes
that were too tight around her ankles.
she yearned for it.

"take me to your house," she said.
there breathes a man
it's funny to think that in a city across the world there may actually be someone called cody hydeman who lives in a house like this.

cold hands on cold keys
make this room feel more lonely,
when my eyes are so tired
the blanket of my eyelids
send them straight to an unwilling sleep.

empty words can't replace your voice
swaying like light through almost-slumber
and the warmth of your head on my shoulder
when i finally drift off to my dreams.
curtains, candles
it's a big cold world and i need somebody to hug right now.

a life in twenty days
and i keep thinking of streetlights, manhattan and apartments,
and this world that brought us so close,
so close i cradled your heart
in these cold-bare arms
and it thawed the winter away.

this love is like a slow dance,
warm and sweet and soft,
the last of the evening when the stars are
so low in the sky,
they send you straight to sleep.

whenever i think of you,
i can't imagine us in this red country,
this stricken country which we call home,
keeping company with
the loneliest nights that man could find
because, darling,
you are my home.
an american love
i'm sorry anushka you can no longer be with the luke
i ship this so hard
i ship itttttt
