PierOct 16th, 1960 | By Ian Poulton | Category: Writing
What about here?
What’s up this street?
Let’s go down there?
Walk, because it is something
and something is better than nothing.
Walk, because it avoids talking
because talking is not possible
when I have nothing to say
and that I am no-one
and to stop would show what I am.
Walk, because it becomes the story itself
and there is no need for another
no need to face the emptiness.
Reaching the end of the pier
there is a stop
an embarrassed giggle
and nothing said
because what can I say without words?
