Thoughts: My 20th Century Pub ... 1988

At the pub…

Sticky marble and condensation rings
The feel of the counter at your back
Pints of stout, drank with King crisps
At the pub…

Snow-washed denim and nearly-famous bands
A wandering gaze and getting a Look
A hand on you shoulder, leaning in to order
At the pub…

Smoke in your eyes and shouting in your ears
A real phone ringing somewhere close by
Newspapers on a table - used, torn and jumbled
At the pub…

Talk about Cocktail and A Fish Called Wanda
Red Dwarf and China Beach
Real, meaningless conversations
At the pub…

(For Boak and Bailey's #20thCenturyPub Competition)
