Urban Myth Has It

That There’s a Driver Who’s Been Orbiting London Ceaselessly

written by: Jenny Middleton

 

You are a coordinate on a map, a starting place and a destination endlessly circling between their arms – the names of places you drove through on the way tyre-tracking into memory.
Distance is a drumming spiral of numbered miles and love is admitting there are places you
will never reach – people you don’t need to meet. Alternate endings gleam and fade in the
tail-lights of cars hurtling beyond you.

standing still

fragrance drifts
