"Being fucked around the pub by strangers with faces that make a lotta noise but say nothing of note... staring into the black hole in my glass kinda wishing it could suck me in and spit me out in another time and place-- a different life with different thoughts and more space to move and be free, think and just be me...and maybe love."
Listen as Dubliner Laurence Falconer sinks his tongue into the moment of blissful suspension in love when eyes lock across a crowded pub upon an otherwise desperate night.
