No, it wasn’t the rain
or the sour scent of unwashed wool,
it wasn’t the stinging sound of strangers
making up on mobile phones.
No, it wasn’t tiredness of Netflix binging until 2 AM,
it wasn’t finding coffee stains way too late
to change your shirt.
No, It wasn’t you or me.
It was just the way it happened, and how you know
is way too late to make amends.
For the Tuesday platform at toads with Pat.
