Londontown

First stamp
Hunger fills walking hours
The art fortifies
Until 17:00
The nights are the hardest

Step swiftly
Left, left always left
Unless right
Then right, right, always right
Pavement: a free for all

Tube stop
Always thirsty
Not enough oceans to quench
Clouds and rain help
Soreness pervades

Step swiftly
Left, left always left
Unless right
Then right, right, always right
Pavement: a free for all

“Sorry”
Apologize in advance
For breathing
And occupying this patch of LDN
A human obstacle

Step swiftly
Left, left always left
Unless right
Then right, right, always right
Pavement: a free for all

Inhale Big Smoke
In every single gasp
Heartbreakingly grand
Oversized to the extreme
Except for the toilets

Step swiftly
Left, left always left
Unless right
Then right, right, always right
Pavement: a free for all

American Woman
Not until I speak
Then I am a native
Oddly frustrating
Unable to categorize silence

Step swiftly
Left, left always left
Unless right
Then right, right, always right
Pavement: a free for all
