We’re seeing so many people die we should just do what we want whenever we want

The words melt from his tongue with the tiredness
of someone who’s binge-watched 40 TED Talks.
His mate agrees and turns down another pint
because it’s a lot darker since the clocks turned back
and he’d hate to slip on his new driveway
with no-one else on the other side of the front door.
