Things in my pocket

My mobile phone buzzing as if to say give up.

Old tissue that has been washed in these jeans.

Another mobile phone when I don't want to talk to anyone but still feel around.

A sheesha pen for when I want to act like I don't smoke.

An empty fag box, because I've run out.

A lighter, for when it's dark..

Chapstick to smoothen my lips.

A wallet to keep me going.
