After The Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After the game the victory shout.
Then the stadium spilled us out
to buses waiting along the mile
between Highbury high and Ashburton Grove.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And I held Islington in my pocket
and I carried it home
to horde under my pillow.
What fleeting visions!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Seen on a day of thin clouds and suns
where the ephemeral beat
of Bergkamp’s dancing feet
rocked my brain into a trance,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 until I ran through the streets
making aeroplanes with outstretched arms,
listening as other grown men
sang Arsenal songs into the starry night.
