Illustrated by Amy Zainal @stobebby

On grey cobbles

Under metal arches

Beneath a maw of hidden lights

Among black bags and denim jackets

In gaudy neon light

Slowly walking, phone in hand

I see her again, hair in the breeze

Me who disappeared

She who didn’t

Across a road I cannot cross.

I watch her fade

Over grey cobbles.
