#Poem the halogen bulbs in the café

On a grey day
the halogen bulbs
in the café
give you migraine
Zig-zag stripes
criss-cross your eyes

You move seats
but reflections
dog you
Nothing settles
You act out your best moments
but you can’t focus
bang your knee on the table edge
slop coffee
everywhere

You’d catch
the train home
but you don’t
trust yourself
to be able
to cross the road
