Art by Nic Rad & Words by Stacey Teague

Affirmation / London, Winter

i escape the wind and light pollution
taking my gloves off with my teeth 
as i descend into marble arch
i can feel the thames
moving through me
most days
getting off the train
i want to kiss
the streets of victoria & you
drunk and tired
we take the night bus
in the wrong direction
middle of the night
heavy rain
heavy body
i watch my friends
dance around a kitchen
somewhere in hackney
we ignore the weather
stay in bed listening to beyonce
on the shortest day of the year
it has rained
for so many days
i miss you
