Modern Day Icons #71

You stand and wait to cross the road
empathising for half a second
with each passing motorist

Specimen

It's half term
and a police helicopter
is patrolling the area
but why
is it following me?

There's space on my bunk for two

Sit back-to-back for support
I'll make miso soup for lunch
