On The 6

Above the umbrellas of London Town And beneath its 4pm skies, Squashed by a window, I sat looking down From a seat passing through Kensal Rise. When a man with a phone stood up to get off A woman and child stood too. As he tackled the stairs with his dry winter cough They made for his 'seat with a view'. Brushing against branches of an overgrown tree Where the gutters and traffic flowed, We slowed one more time as a guy next to me Pressed to stop just before Edgware Road. The metal bars shook as we started again But diversions, because of the march Meant we turned on ourselves through the icy, cold rain Several minutes from Marble Arch. Darkness set in over theatres and shops As warm lights lit cafés inside. Numb faces that stared from the Aldwych bus stops Hailed the end of this whimsical ride. ***
