The train winds to a stop like a cog turning,

Broken air-con suppressing us like tissue-paper,

like a rubber band stretched – suddenly melting,

Hydraulics, simple force of will,

freedom within others confinement,

I’d smash through a window, escape through the tunnels, for a breath of stale-fresh air, 

steal a boat, no waves or unfair wind to stop me from reaching you

-or perhaps simply walk on water, water molecules inert, fixed in place-

best friend;

I’m longing to put a stop to time,

drop ‘who I am’ like a heavy suitcase

And run.
