I walk everywhere or if I can’t I catch public transport. This poem to me symbolises my attempts at connecting with those around me, the self absorbed ones who I try and greet or even just smile at. Great poem!
Hey, headphone man
with your head cast down,
I drive past you each day as you soldier on your way,
Always in the same place, unless you are late,
or I am early.
I try to catch your eye, but you march with determination
toward your destination.
I want to share our small connection, give a wave, or smile,
but you just stare at the ground, absorbed in the sound in your head.
Hey headphone man!
I’ve been working on this one for ages, as I do pass this guy every day on my way to work.
