subterraneously shuffling

Long subway unpeopled 

apart from the occasional drugged or drunken occupant

of a cardboard bedroom.

 

I walk under its dimmed sodium sky

from one night excluded end

to the other night recommencing end

stride invading this underpass  concrete world

my footsteps giving birth to echoes

that ricochet off cavernous graffiti sprayed walls.

 

Eventually rejoining the night I find rain has joined in to prepare a wet welcome

for my emergence that I don't want to accept.

My watch says no rush, my feet agree

about turning.

 

Strolling back

my mind makes up the ridiculous game

of dream-seeing the ghost of who I was fifteen minutes ago

coming towards

' who the fuck are you looking at ? the imagined me is stupidly made to say

 

I don't know my real mouth replies

but we can't go on meeting like this, can we?

 

Laughing to myself making the correction that

perhaps we will one day

when turning back is not an option.

I liked your original title Rose (who invited this 'troublemaker'?. He's supposed to be in bed)

To me the original invites. 'this looks interesting, come and explore'.

'Tunnel Vision' just says tunnel vision. So? But that's just me Rose. You're the creator. You're in charge of your creation....
