Today’s Short #Poem 186

On a grey day
the halogen bulbs
in the café give you migraine
Zig-zags 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
