Or watch the world passing
outside, like you do

Quickening, as light fades
the green speeds by

Yellow, a far horizon glows
‘neath a darkening strip
with smoke drifting

Especially when your working day
Is eighteen hours or more

Found my way to Finchley Central
On the Northern line
Bitter cold in London town

Euston Square

by Jem Croucher

 

Hoards of people waiting
Coffees at their side
Watching the announcement boards
Waiting for their ride
