ONE STAR

Such a small bed
Such a bad hotel

Flashback

Neon sign
Flashing

Fifteen dollars
No breakfast

Cheap rate

One dollar
Twenty minutes

And not a minute more

Not pretty
Not cool
Not quiet

The only pictures –
My private collection

A black and white trail
Of late-night prints

Hard lines
And soft curves

High contrast
Monotone

Baby
Baby

I move your arm
And look down at the bottle

I need to breathe

After all of this time

I still want to
Recognise this reflection
