.then there was machester.

maybe in the fifth visit i met him

in the city in the thrift shop


from nine maybe till six or five thirty

several buttons and an open face


adorned with patterns

he opened easily

recognised we are not robots

despite the badges

it is colourful in the city

she mentioned it in suprise

immediately apologised

notice i talk more about people than

the architecture though that was appreciated

and wrote of it especially

do you know i watched the pigeon paddle

the parakeets flying


over the road carefully minding the trams

the tram lines

tripping gently forward

we found our way together

in manchester the fifth time
