Still Waiting

Still Waiting

The sun is not out but the market is still too warm, too humid.

Sweat trickles down my back.

A man with Tourette's curses the air, marching up between fruit stalls and cheap fashion towards Loughborough's famous Sock Man sculpture.

Strawberries three punnets a pound.

still waiting
the pregnant woman mops
her brow with her sleeve
