Leicester Station

A locomotive creeping under the mosque:
"Great, that's two sixties"
a boy voice flings.

Clattering mutterings are overwhelmed
by the sharp aria of fiddled coins,
applause from a crisp packet.

The waiting room is as silent as breathing:

pages sweep magazines,
weight strobes floorboards,
itches abandon throats.

Busy, so feminine legs,
remind me,
and loneliness brushes through.

it's my hands
my difficulty with melancholy
hence the coldness
fear in flight, god
