Two and a half hours, I’ve had to wait.
Two and a half hours, I’ve
at this bus stop
See this hand here,
See the hole here, in the
A knife hole.
Last night I stopped
Grabbed the knife. See,
I’m stuck here – on the bus. The slow bus, the late bus –
waiting. Late. Good thing there’s no-one late for their court case. Good thing. But I,
Was going to go. To go to the hospital. Not time now, though. Not going. Not now. See
this injury, this
This hole, my voice, my life. Needs
help. But I’m not
Not now, because you’re not. That man’s not. That woman’s not. That child’s not. No-one.
No-one’s listening to me
See this. This corkscrew. Metal on metal. Snapping.
See this. This knife. Four inches. Metal on metal. Metal on fabric. Slashed seats. Noise. Like drums.
Look. Listen. Look.
Listen to me.
