Poem Storeyean | December 23 |2023

8-A voice says "The waiting room is open."
7-A stranger's voice says "I don't remember."
6-A morning's mist coats the platform.
5-"Is it ok? Photo?"
4-Platform - an old concrete waiting space.
3-Painted lines flowing,
2-Pain paused.
2-"Press it."
3-"Eh, Move on."
4-Walking through the seats.
5-Waking up. Looking out. Looking -
6-And talking. To myself, to you?
7-Inside I feel myself breathing and watching.
8-"Today is not as misty as yesterday, eh?"
