I am embarrassed.
Woke up today, very early. Prepared, in part because my lover was also up, and had something to do in town. So, out of bed, to town, on a Saturday morning. Only to discover that I was not supposed to be at work.
Sent a message to my lover. (Didn’t want to talk to him. A sharp tongue sometimes!) And he rang back, and asked me how I had come to make such an embarrassing mistake. Not so subtle!
I decided to walk back home. Wanted to say in penance, but if it was penance, I loved it too much. Heavy overcast, sun just filtering a grey light through. Promising rain, but none as yet.
burgeoning, building, busy city;
the feel of the inside of an anthill-
termite citadel indeed,
all inhabitants busy going- somewhere
too busy to take note
one tiny insignificant ant, me.
