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.

5. Then it goes


Then it goes.

The it being the atmosphere

Between person

And person.

The Empress stands,

ears being the trident

Amongst turbulent seas

And eyes rumble with a message

To go home.


They leave with a crinkle

And a thank you.


 You are left with music

And air

And coffee.


“What can I get for you?”

The voice registers briefly

In a cloud filled head.

You repeat your order,

Something you’ve rehearsed

Since leaving the apartment,

And you count the change in your hands,

Putting the extra in the tips jar at the front.


You say the words previously said by

The crinkled man

And ask for a job.

There are no jobs ‘til the end of the year.

You should have known that

But you didn’t think of it before.

You shake your head,

There’s enough to last until the end,

In fact the finish line isn’t too far away.


And you say the words of the crinkled man once more,

The air dissipating

And returning to the cold.
