Marc Carver


I look outside the window
and see the shopping trolley
that is sat in the park.
It has been there now
for about two or three weeks
I have lost count
Of how long.
I have seen young children being pushed about in it.
But there is no one there today.
The park is empty
and so
is the trolley.
The clouds get blacker and the rain gets heavier.
A bird flies over the trolley
And out of view.
I change my view
But still
Feel the same way.
