Welcome to Wednesdays

And the pebbles dance
dance as the little
lad kicks them
and the pigeons
dodge up and
take wing
and the overslept
shuttered-in shops
line the pavement
and the chorus line
traffic comes together
to sing
whilst the mothers
push prams across
askew puddle pavements
and jobseekers walk
by with their
eyes to the ground –

Welcome to Wednesdays
when you’d rather not
be here,

Welcome to Wednesdays
in your nearby hometown.
