Central Station – Friday afternoon

I watch the insurgent crowd,
whirling around where I wait
…….beneath the ‘big clock’.

I think I am not this type or that
maybe once I was
…….or never have been.

I used to wish
to be other than I am
…….but no longer.

I am content in my red woollen coat
leaning against the wall
…….waiting for you.
