A Moment

by Daniel   Oct 1, 2020


A solitary raindrop
rolls down your left cheek
from the corner of
your eye -

there is a hole
in the roof of the bus
shelter

you hesitantly peel
a tangerine;
hold a segment
to your lips,

we are perhaps
transfixed
by different
things

as world whirs by
in slow motion.

You are not masked
and everything is
distant

except us.

    Well done, Daniel. Is there a possible typo in 'as world'? I believe a 'the' would fit very snugly indeed between that lovely use of alliteration! :)

    All the best as ever, good man.
