Title: Killing Time

They live behind
drab faded nets
She smokes all day
He places bets.

Killing time.

At 12 noon
they start on cans
Cheap booze clasped
in trembling hands.

Killing time.

They order
take-aways to eat.
Kebabs or pizza
then something sweet.

Killing time.

Their telly’s on
from awake, to bed
They watch transfixed
with empty heads.

Killing time.

They don’t talk much
what’s there to say?
They can hardly chat
about their day.

Killing time.
