Early Evening

table2The oddness of the autumn afternoon,
Suburbs in Bristol, Reading, Birmingham, Leeds.
Local train travel home over Victorian infrastructure,
To Edwardian and 30s semis.

In the vegetarian kitchen of the unintentional batchelor,
The sun will not go down for a while,
And whilst families nearby eat Iceland teas,
The news and then the local news are feeding the tv.
