Commute — Katie Fanthorpe

Soupy countryside on the verge of dislocation,
lean all my thoughts in a container out the toilet window.

The man across the carriage stares –
silent participles stich his hands to his sides.

It’s the anxiety that pulls at the latches
of train doors and loose rails.

This journey is repeating on me,
which landscape am I today?
