My life is like a screenplay

Interior teenager’s bedroom, action.
Kid lying on bed, wondering which scene will end up on the cutting floor

SHOT OF SCHOOL, dread and boredom
SHOT OF THE CITY, excitement and creative whoredom

PAN THROUGH CITY STREETS, kid wearing a shirt too big for him
Surely this city will tear him limb from limb

Super: two years later he now calls this place home
Exterior London, hippodrome.
