So what’s stopping you from coming?
pick her up from training
meet somewhere halfway
wait at the bus stop

so that your sms “miss you”
were not just a word
or by chance, or for tea
or mistake again

maybe the train ran out again
and did not have time for another
maybe it’s just a habit
and in vain I now rhyme?

and you and she is a virtual stream
just an internet game
and your questions are not so global
like a blackout…
