Because today there is no grey

Letting my mind come to rest,
it slips into the groove;
into the cross-thread screw
that is me and you.

As I sit here in this grubby café
waiting for a train
that will never come
I notice only absence;

no steaming cups of coffee,
no bustle, no props, no paid extras;

no epic war raging outside,
no innocent casualties
bleeding quietly
around the edges of my vision;

no Lean guy directing the action,
just some fucked-up god
with a twisted sense of humour
and bad timing.

No, today there is only absence
and for now, for this tiny
fraction of time that we have
been given, I am content,

in this place,
where everything else falls away
and all that matters is the
black and white space we share.
