Victoria

Victoria

Busy Victoria station one evening
The announcements calling for different departures
People milling everywhere… Here a sound “Gatwick, Gatwick”
There a whistle signaling another train

People with their phones glued to their ears
Some wheeling suitcases and some traveling lighter
Some running to catch a train and some waiting for loved ones
With children skipping and mothers looking harried

Here a man buying a bouquet of flowers
There a woman choosing a magazine to read on the train
Brisk business at the shops selling sandwiches and coffee
All the while trains keep coming and going

People rushing always moving never stopping
The homeless people sit outside asking for pennies
People with poodles Boys with their doodles
People loving living running eating
Never stopping… Just like the wheels of the trains
