Journey

I looked out of the train window

I saw a young woman sat next to the sitting statue on the bench

if you didn’t know he was not real you would never know

The woman sat opposite me gets a call

it doesn’t matter if you are gay she tells her daughter

I love you regardless we will work it out don’t worry

look I really really love you but I haven’t come across anything like this before look lets leave it there darling I’m coming into the station

she lies

then puts the phone down

and she looks at me

her lie is safe with me but our journey goes on
