Underground Part 1 to 6

entry picture


Out of tune busker
Pausing for a few moments
Opens up a beer.


Pausing for its breath
The train can’t look back turning
Away from the guard.


Getting off the train
You almost turn back round to
Get straight back on it.


Stepping from the mist

You feel like you are stepping

From a dark film noir.



Pausing suddenly

you think briefly getting off

your pass is at home.



On the way off you

Pick up a paper before

dropping in the rain.

The last seat on the train
it races past my station
but I have no ticket.
