Bets

Laura used to work in a Ladbrokes,
so she knew already that all of my bets
were bad decisions,
watching me lose on the horses,
backing the wrong team for the treble.

I told her to have some belief in me,
but she’d been long since dulled,
rarely even had anyone cash in winnings
and gave me little in the way of good advice.

Chichester, June 2017
