No-show – A Poem by J H Martin

No-show

Sometimes
I don’t feel right

Sometimes
I don’t feel like it

The sun is too bright
The ground is too cold

Head down
Hood up

I speak when I am spoken to
And I walk half the speed

Past the factory
Past the closed shop
And on past the estate

I see not
I hear not

I let the world turn away
