[Chinatown, Cowcaddens]

These photos were taken in the Chinatown Mall, Glasgow.
Four accompanying haiku document my early sexual experiences.

Fifty pence per play
Clammy hands on warm joysticks
While button flicking

Feeling the pressure
Friends watching over shoulder
Only one life left

 

Hammering controls
A new challenger enters
Knock out! – play again?

The countdown begins
Insert coins to continue
Lost it –  GAME OVER
