THOUGH IT’S NOT EVEN SPRING:

A woman falls asleep on a train,
A man kills time when he gets it on it’s own,
A young woman with an alabaster face wraps herself in a fake leopard,
Holding the hand of a boy like a stick looking lost,
Up aboveground the sun is shining,
Trying to be Summer

Sunday 3rd October

I SEE A LAUGHING COUPLE (LOOKING A LITTLE INSANE):

In a photograph,
I see an embroidered bird on the breast of a man,
Loosing his hair,
Three embroidered birds on another man’s back,
Whose hair turns Silver,
Another man walks with a battleship embroidered on his head,
Wrestling a heavy Pink bag,
With a fat Silver watch,
A woman walks underground,
A young man strokes his own hair,
Listening to sounds no one can hear

Saturday 2nd October

AFTER WE HAVE GONE WILL THEY STILL BE DANCING?:

This travelling box we’re in,
All the people we remember we forgot,
Send each one a message,
Suck a mint to freshen your breath,
It’s a courtesy,
Stops people flinching when you speak,
Watch out for the cracks,
They start at the back,
Call ahead,
Say your name,
Tell the voice on the other end you’re sorry,
Use the time,
Don’t kill it
