I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


One's swallowed in a zipped-up anorak

One's shrunk inside a too-big fleece


'I thought it would be bad

I thought it would take two hours'


'No it takes half an hour

We'll be there in half an hour'


'Well that's not too bad is it

Not all that bad at all'


'No idea where to get a cup of tea

Can't think where to go'


'All these signs and places

It's impossible to know'


One hoiks her handbag to her shoulder

One tugs her suitcase a little closer

Day 83 King's Cross sonnet

King's Cross station, London, a warm August morning 2017.
