race.

did you call your mum?
because he’s going away;
and she doesn’t know.

did you feed the dogs?
they have endless appetite,
and she doesn’t know.

did you text your brother?
the kids are bored and tired,
and your wrinkles are showing.

did you wave to your uncle?
the light is slowing fading;,
we all see it – but he can’t.

did you wave to the stranger?
feel the sense of celebrity
and every ounce of sparkle.

did you kiss your girlfriend?
because she’s still waiting,
and you’ve already gone away.
