In a corner of this pub, skinny girl stroking big strong man and drinking sweets, something expensive, which he tries to balance with cheap beer. He catches me watching her and makes the look of the bull at me for a second but it's nothing. She likes his attention straight up, without the trouble, and he likes getting credit for the gesture without actually having to get up and extrude my eyeballs with his thumbs. I write him down and watch her curl round about herself.
