He’s sat in a Vauxhall Corsa
with dinosaur shaped wellies
shoved over both of his hands.
A probable chocolate stain
is resting on his cheek next to a tear.
A woman is in the carpark
walking towards the train station,
she yells the words while pulling
her phone out of her handbag.
A man behind the steering wheel
pulls the car away before a wave
has the chance to live.
