Presence tense

Stepping on a train

there was nothing

but limited time

and the pouring rain.


A lone carriage car

was my home

no warm fireplace,

but not very far


was an cosy armchair

where I rest my form

nothing less or more

than my presence there.


Was I really content?

– question unanswered

Great towering steeples

and time just leant


and I slid slowly

down its endless

slippery slope

until I was wholly


consumed within

its grand halls

and passageways,

enveloped in its skin.
