Outside revving bikes were splitting the night.
'Where we going?'
'Let's go swimmin' up the Common'.
'We ain't got no swim-suits with us'.
'We'll swim down one end and you down the other. It's dark, ain't it?'
'Who do yer think's going to see yer? The man in the moon?'
'Yeah and what's to stop yer hands wandering?'
'We'll tie 'em behind our backs'.

'Harshly truthful-yet poetic'
