the country sped by

in all its dusted brown glory

for the second time in one day

and it was only 2pm

i’d finished my work

had a bit of a walk around town

and hopped on the train home

i should’ve stayed longer

but felt defeated by thoughts

of peak hour public transport

of things

to be done

and of people

and their expectations

of my availability

so I left

wondering what

hidden things

I might’ve found

If I’d had more time

to look.
