Delayed

Delayed

We’ll get the 16:22 Hazel Grove service,
and we’ll get off at Piccadilly station.

The train will be delayed by 17 minutes
but we won’t notice because our eyes

will be lost in conversation. I will sip
from my coffee and we’ll share a cigarette

and by the time the train arrives
we’ll have seen each other naked.
