BBXO

BBXO is: many things - the spring wind that sings through your scarf and against your skin - the angry rattle of the late night tram - the desperate man - that phone call where the loneliness began -

  

BBXO is: the first mouthful of weekend alcohol - the cap tucked under the hoodie, the full-fat milk and the cookie -
BBXO is: self-honesty's sting - the distant friend who suddenly rings - the morning mist, the first hand across the family rift -
BBXO is: the message unread, the common thread - the smack of caffeine - the proud stain, the playful dark -
BBXO is: thought - the claws of a hawk - the cobble of the stone, the stumble home - the graveside tear, the fear clutched near - the midnight haze, the work then the wait -
BBXO is: urgent - it’s London, Hamburg, Berlin -
BBXO is: tunes - the bass roaming the walls of the room - the soles of your feet danced gratefully sore - the thirsty ears desperate for more -
BBXO is: the severed cord, the sword gently withdrawn, the child's first yawn, autumn dawn -
BBXO is: the welcoming laugh, the calming star, the walk to the lands beyond charts.
