GOTHAM CITY

benidorm

Young

night in

Gotham City

high-rise lights

twenty degrees

 

White shirts

polished shoes

balcony banter

vodka and wine

 

Old Spice

R & B

sunburnt skin

funnels and fire

 

Heading in;

into Gotham

special deals

free first drink

 

Sticky dancefloors

foamy mist

Sangria cocktails

down in one

 

On stage

dancer’s cage

robot moves

on the pole

 

John Travolta

cardboard box

getting hazy

little fish big

 

Scatman John

Humpin’ Around

I’m A Believer

Boom Boom Boom

 

Catching glances

looking good

feeling sick

need a drink

 

Sweaty bodies

losing friends

finding beers

on empty tables

 

Walking alone

completely lost

chilli kebab

down my shirt

 

Aimless wandering

dream-like confusion

rising sun

where’s the hotel?

 

Wallet missing

memory wiped

staggering in

sick on floor

 

Nothing pulled

counting friends

someone sleeping

on my bed

 

Checking suitcase

finding money

50 pesetas

for another drink

 

Heading back;

back to Gotham;

back to the night

when the

time was

young.
