One finer day

Ready,
Get set.
Are we there yet?

always I am before you can guess
swings on a chess board
held tight by the wire cord,
more movement
less haste and let’s not waste
the moment.

French polish by the half German,
the other half is from Basildon,
seeing reflections in the residues
of a war.

are we there yet and if so what for?
the journey becomes me and I
the journey, to
mix and to match it
throw away and then catch it and
I wonder
what makes people tick.
