Two men in flowing

perfectly white, Islamic robes

each carrying two white pales 

of white paint 

towards a Toyota Hiace 

also white

in an industrial park near Taita



A huge cloud of vape

emerging from the tinted window

of a black sedan

into a beam of sunlight

in a megaplex carpark



A miserable Saturday morning

under the motorway offramps

a guy waiting at a bus-stop


weathered, lean

of indeterminate age

shoulder length hair

a duffle bag at his feet

the sun appears from under the gloom

at the top of the gorge

a beautiful light

suddenly in his hair 

as he stares up the road 

and all the cars go past


on the double decker bus

through Berhamphore

8am Friday morning

a woman in a nightgown on the deck of her unit

lights her first cigarette and grimaces

the big Rottweiler out on the porch

with her

is looking the other way

you see some things

on the double decker bus
