We’re on the left as you walk in
on a square, faux-marble table.
I have a panini stuffed
with three types of cheese,
only one of them is from France.
Some Walkers ready salted are sat beside it.
Two men to my right are talking
about Moira Stewart being born in Scotland
and I won’t tell them she was born in London.
There are no pictures of Patrice Evra in here,
but I am thinking about his talented feet
tapping on the tiled floor wondering
when they will fully settle into their new town.
