#2,688 Arsenal 0 – Brighton 3

Mike Bell/ May 15, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Eyes up to those wide
TVs bolted high in this
pub – afternoon footie
& pints – passions [but
no women] – ended in
balding men hugging –
a great result – easiest
of refrains – beer-spilt
with each goal given –
crisps shoved back as
broken fans weep in a
fabulous stadium – it’s
theatre & opera & our
pleasure [unless VAR’s
rules override it all] – I
climb that high street
where I greet ghosts &
cheats [auld players of
one-sided ball games]
