i’ve been looking for clues

walking the streets

after dark

reveals another world

of off-coloured lights

and strange

mis-remembered memories

as i search the maps

small whorls appear

leading me in and out

of high-

and low-pressure zones

a rush of thoughts

and a passing train

rattles my head

in the morning

different shadows appear

cast in odd directions

a message from the ocean?

i can’t decipher this

not yet
