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.
