A Second of Confusion

silent journey
people counting
the remaining hours
of a day
that time left
before sleep
reading newspapers
or
incoming texts
on the gig a gig train
but for some
tiredness has prevailed
bowed heads
chins in place
gradually the twitching
sets in
an elbow slips
a second of confusion
then

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
