Metropolitan Ennui – June 24,2016

On the retro-style barstools along the windows,

millenials garbed in their faux-assemblage

of the hat,faded cargo pants and designer leather

sit staring at their i-phones or just gazing

out into the drizzling rain,

holding large artisanal coffee cups between their hands,

wondering if they had chosen;

the right subject at university,

the right designer sofa,

the right partner,

the right football team,

or the right european city

in which to realise their predestined aspirations;

they intend to go on as if everything is as before

whilst in the corner an authentic 60’s jukebox

plays their parents’ songs and

everything is not as before..

Footnote:-

June 24 2016 was the day after the UK voted to Leave the european union.

    One of the best works of Louis Kasatkin ! Creative and imaginative at it’s poetic best . A must for the discerning reader.
