Time Machine 

I thought it odd no shops open this Monday morning,
there was a coffee machine at the corner where she 
lived but I had no coins, had wanted to walk past her 
house while preoccupied with drinking coffee, should
she look out and open the window and ask what I was
doing here in her street I would tell her I was looking
for a garage to repair my car. I walked past her house
anyway, windows shuttered, what a lazy woman 
sleeping the morning away. Now I was hungry wanted 
a bacon butty and a strong cup of tea, but the local 
café was also shut… an elderly man with his dog walked
by told me the café didn´t open on Sundays, which 
I thought remarkable I had beaten time with 24 hours. 
But in order to adjust my time with reality I walked 
home and went back to bed.
