Six One

He sat alone in the

Corner of the room

On a well-worn tired


Working boots kicked off, 

While current affairs

Aired on. 


Tired eyes stared into wonder

As his right hand cradled

His weary head. 

I wondered was he tuned in

When he looked

Miles away from home. 

◄ The friend I can be
