another day, another gin

the gap                                  between the

platform                                 and the train

he boards                               each night to

travel home                            was nothing

compared                               to the gap

between                                him and                his family

cheers guys. its very (very) loosely based on a song called Bill McKay by a scouse band called The Coral. a jangly little number about a man that reminisces about his childhood days during his long commuted home then commits suicide. quite downbeat really but a nice tune either way.

Thrilled to see I'm not the only one.

My heart needed this, thank you. Wonderful piece.

Stu,

A shaped poem in which the typography really expresses the theme.
