Brian Horton – Triangular Sandwiches

Triangular Sandwiches

Gurning reflections in tunnels,
The end of them always surprised,
A journey to nowhere, just for the fun,
No rush to hopes not realised.

Smiling at others wasting their lives,
Sweet certainty said what was right,
No drudgery, drabness or deadlines,
We’d laugh at them as we alight.

Now, train rides are such a reminder,
Of diddley you and diddley me
Eating triangular sandwiches
And burning our lips on the tea.

Eating triangular sandwiches
And sharing those smiles with me.
