A FUNNY THING HAPPENED TO ME


ON THE WAY TO THE POETRY READING

 

(true story)

I come out of the underground

at King's Cross station

then I'm lost

YOU ARE HERE

arrowed in red

the plan reassures me

 

but the road I'm looking for

isn't in the index

 

I can't find a friendly local policeman

who'll tell me the way with a nod & a smile

 

there's not a soul

with A-Z in hand

 

passers-by I ask

don't seem to understand my question

as if I were speaking a foreign language

 

or they say they are strangers like me

just as lost

 

I wish I had the fare

I'd hail a taxi

 

instead without a clue how to get there

I'm glued to the spot & despair

of ever making it in time
