Have a rest. Grab a coffee.
Pop your lips around some pastry.
Slalom around Wet Floor signs.
Shake your head at chocolate prices.
Watch people rubbing their eyes
and wonder where they’re running to
or running from. Grab a coffee. Have a rest.
Imagine you’re on a new planet.
Talk to someone. Smile at someone.
Think about where you’re running.
