Random Poem:

to the dry side (edit one)
plb

i had settled in top side of the double decker,
 1
pulled my scarf around my chin and
 2
plugged into headphones to listen in
 3
on two dead men talk about what the
 4
world was like before the flood.
 5
 
 
she checks over her shoulder but
 6
doesn't notice me staring till after she's
 7
ducked down to pick up the butt of
 8
someone's discarded cigarette.
 9
 
 
grey hair matted against a grey day she
 10
meets my eyes and looks away, embarrassed
 11
at having been caught by an onlooker
 12
from the dry side of another rain streaked window.
