On timing

September 22, 2010

If you time it right
And open yourself
As a window opens
Or maybe a gate
You can walk
Without stopping
Through the whole of London
If you time it right
And the city allows you

If you open yourself
Like car door opens
Or an angry mouth
You can stop
At every street light
in Moscow
When it’s lost in haze
and people
meet your eye
only to determine
that you are a stranger

  1. There’s a nice sense of mystery about this, and an easy tone – made me read several times. I like it. Congrats!
