You Are Here

You are here, at the cusp of adulthood, the key is in your hand for 21C Autumn Lodge.
He is there, teetering on the edge of maturity in an adult body, a coffee in hand, a dog by his side and the world on his tongue.
For the love category of the Christmas Competition 2017


9. May it just be a pause?


May it just be a pause?

A second of reprieve

Where you get to bask

In all that she is,

The cold outside,

 and the warmth in here.


The agreement is to meet for coffee when your shift ends,

You’ll go round to her place,

The door next to yours

And you’ll chat your lives away.

Well at least hopefully.

You pray that

Your tongue

Does not fail you, 

instead skills seep into it,

Like sand into shoes

And sleep into bodies.


She leaves

And shadows come,

The hand of the clock drags,

And electricity


On skin which feels

Endless patience

For the storm to

Quietly and subtly arrive.
