A sexy bloke in blue running shorts
carrying a pack of chicken breasts.
A builder yawning
over a wheelbarrow of concrete at his feet.
A wide awake butcher in her van
eating a bag of ready salted crisps.
A broken white plastic fork
lying jobless in a puddle.
A cold lonely bus stop
wondering if people will visit.
A deflated balloon of a man
standing at the window
relearning what to do.
