Central Line

Bear on the tube rollercoaster

Blacked out windows on the central line

Bling line

Smells of hospitals and sweeties

Well-to-do gentleman at Bond St

Wears too much bad aftershave

Pretty girl with blue headphones

Connection through thoughts

Of idiot fashion victim

Over-zealous tube driver

Marble Arch

Bad paintings on walls

Too much speed from driver

Lancaster Gate

Chuck Taylor in my face

Bigger than life

Corroded paint hides rust

Industrial red

Hands in their millions

Gripped to the worm

Obstructing the doors

Can be dangerous


One bad haircut

Empty platform



Priority seats

The elderly don’t ride the worm

Notting Hill Gate

All Queens alight

Confused woman

Won’t sit down

Man writes like me


Confused woman steps from the worm

Run-down stairwell

High pitched ringing

Doors close

Wind rushes through

Feeding us stale Oxygen

What’s a boy

Supposed to do?

Shepherds Bush

No sheep

We are all sheep
