Piece of work

Piece of work

City shrouded
in early morning mist
stillness in the grey air
not a leaf or branch moving
the landscape through which
I’m travelling
inert

Train hurtling down the line
into the future
but life immobilised
alongside the track

Two things might change all this
work and love
both require energy
and belief : it’s
a real piece of work
God help me
