National Poetry Day: The 10.19

The 10.19 from Bradford to Leeds

It’s a train, not a bike

But for the sake to National Poetry Day

Let’s imagine

That I’m cycling

Speeding down the superhighway

(That they have built)

Except, I’m told

It’s a bit of an obstacle course for cyclists

Perhaps the train is easier

So I’ll stop imagining

If only we were birds and could fly


(At least that penultimate line rhymed…)
