Full Stop.

train is struck

full stop.

with no intention

of pulling out

just sits!

at platform two

like a spare….

oh good,

here’s the announcement

first the apology……

then, gibberish

the missing syllables

have other business

a four year old

is using the intercom

then silence!

a more important train

is creeping in

Too late

forget the schedule

next the reprieve

then, we’re free


and the day has only



Thatcher Doran


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!
