Second Stop

The second stop sees a celebrity doppleganger in the supermarket where a man in the bakery aisle looks the spit of Jeremy Clarkson except his body language is devoid of self-confidence and his tongue, when he says something to his wife about needing a loaf of bread, lacks the swerve and verve of Clarkson’s wit. 

I can’t get out of the place quick enough: too many colours trigger dislocation and I have no idea why I thought to go in there in the first place, the best bargain being the sweep of the automatic doors and daylight, the promise of the road again.

  1. Yes, oh, yes, "the promise of the road again." No wonder Kerouac thought it best to keep going... so long as he could.
