profligacy of youth​ (one profanity)

sordid scrapyard
under arches
out of left window
on train into Wolvo

it's always been their
big white, badly daubed letters

SMILE YOU THIEVING BASTARDS
YOUR ON CAMERA

I look for my old friend
but it's gone

I realise right then
my childhood is over

age 36 and a month and a half

You do make some interesting poems. My favorite lines SMILE YOU BASTARDS-YOUR ON CAMERA AND I realize then my childhood is over---age 36

this piece gives off a nice melancholy feel- and the end is sad, in a funny sort of way. Things change and nothing will ever be the same- the child within realizes he's no longer a child but an adult- I was 60 when I realized I was no longer that kid who bought comics at the candy store... good job..
