On The Street, Leicester

May. Rain so intense it hurts

like February.

Two tall men stood

on the corner outside

the mini-mart by the station.


A ham and cheese sandwich

with a note shared

stories of losing fathers

in youth. Two lives

navigated by guesswork.

  1. This is strong and palpable writing. I can see them and feel the rain.

    1. Thank you. A fleeting but authentic connection between two strangers. Worth reporting, I felt. 🙏
