A Crossroad



 A Crossroad

I saw:
A mad lady wearing a stripy pink wig smoking a cigar
Two men discussing Neil Gaiman
A girl in a wheelchair who was bored of charity shops
A man who first left his paper in the Post Office, then his money
A lady who gave him a kiss because she was laughing
Many cars, each like a hot tin clockwork toy.

As the wind blew, time stopped for a moment
I became aware of the spaces between the lorries

The cavernous need for kindness.
