Two years ago

Today

I had given up my job

In HMRC

And started studying acting

At the RCS

Two years ago

Today,

I had started seeing a girl -

An American chick

On the course -

...and had set out that morning

for the Glasgow Chili Cook-Off,

with a cowboy hat,

and some cowboy boots

that were rather small

for this particular

Vaquero.

After the end,

I stupidly tried

some ghastly,

stupid,

‘hot-sauce-chilli-dog-food-freak-challenge’

that I miserably failed.

Drunk, and lame,

I staggered and stumbled

back to the cute

American

girl’s flat -

Mouth on fire,

Foot in cramp,

tail between my legs.

I told her I loved her for the very first time.

(glad I got something right)

Today

It’s chilli time

Again.

This time

I sincerely hope

I’m not too big for my boots.
