Change To The Plan

You dress for work but it might as well be a funeral 
from the blackness, straightness of your suit
Then the phone rings and it's all off
the phone rings as you pull out of the petrol 
station the price shining in silver
one hand on the wheel the other
clamping the phone to your head 
wondering how you'll change gear
as the car picks up speed
Drive over the bridge 
don't bother looking at the river
the trees black against the sky
rubbish sacks lining the street
telling you it's Thursday

  1. I like the pace of this very much. The sense of a day unravelling too.
