Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

tube man VIII (2006)

she kissed him and she left him
and he sat back down.
i watched the reflection of her face
squeegee right to left
across the carriage window as
he waved, warily,
knowing he would be left alone
with strangers who
had seen him wave;
to suffer their silent
condemnation
of his hand technique
and hesitation.
