A Continental Appearance

Wearing last Friday’s incontinence pad, he ambles on into a game-playing cafe in

Colchester, thinking to play with the crowds.

The crowds, thinking otherwise, disperse and exit.

Out in the streets of a Roman stronghold, a centurion gives his orders, and the games

continue; continental soldiers, with drip-drying-dangly bits, and

wiped-with-shared-sponges bottoms,

being impervious.

    Last Friday, strode boldly into Dice & Slice and it was already absolutely empty—and remained so all night. The previous Sunday, at the Sunday Extra Scribble, it was absolutely heaving and we couldn’t hear ourselves think or talk!
