in Croydon, Surrey, UK

Staring

Cocoons of changing
Animals or
images from
Childhood nightmares
Faces unseen
Since family days out
Zoo like mess
Depravity in white
I stare skywards
Eyes crinkled
Sunlight hidden for moments
Before I stream salt tears
Wince in pain
At jumbled elephants
Tigers and dolphins
Gliding into trains
Sliding downwards
Into blanks
And shapeless
Wisps of
Vapour
