Wednesday 31st January


Hand over mouth,
Bird from the sky,
Walks around under the table,
Waiting for a train,
Illuminated number,
A paper bag left unattended in a public place,

The memory,
Fear & insecurity,
The world in a ruc-sac,
Slung on the back of look-around eyes,
A phone that wont stop ringing,

A cancelled train to a tunnel,
A night of joy & celebration,
Your name,
Called by a stranger in a crowd,
The name of a city near where I was born,
Called by a pre-recorded voice,
A tone so beautifully soporific,
I’m in danger of missing the train
