#2,608 A lunchtime escape

Mike Bell/ January 30, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

A lunchtime escape to Ashdown
Forest where you now pay £2.30
to park for an hour among other
escapees –
sun a requirement at
a couple of quid a pop –
plus get
to watch a dog walker lever off a
pair of lined wellies –
endless art
to comment on –
It is cheaper to
pull up on an equally shit-strewn
street in Brighton these days –
if I know for sure –
This low light’s
flare through my windscreen is a
welcome rub –
a nudge into doze
until my phone goes into a fit –
couple of quid more to chill here
