Prominent veins

Stand clear
it’s
Thursday today and
Friday is near to the surface.

I’m still tunneling through the
underworld or underground
making ground

but carefully
one step at a time
which is all I can manage
in a carriage that’s
choc a block
with passenger who
are taking stock
of
their situations.

and I got myself a seat,
neat.

her dress is an artwork
or
perhaps it’s a skirt
an artwork
anyway.

I can’t see the light yet
but
I bet that I will
and I’m guessing I get off
when I’m over the hill
which we’ll all be.
one day.
