Man on the tube

On the tube today I saw man.
A man who looked like me.
An older me.
A man whose hair disliked his forehead.
A man with a face like one constantly suppressing a yawn.
A man whose eyes spoke more than his mouth.
A weather beaten man.
A people beaten man.
A humourless man delivering a warning.

On the tube today I saw a man.
A man who looked like me.
A man in my reflection.
