He’s in the pub testing
a new productivity app
before going across the road
to watch City in the Champions League.
The forefinger of his right hand
is darting from peanut bag
to the skip ad button
on the YouTube tutorial
playing on his iPad.
He’s chatting to his wife
through noise cancelling headphones.
His feet are tapping
to music only he can hear.
