POEM: "Grimace (Take 2)"

Grimace (Take 2)

One more lesson
don’t daydream in taxis
shenanigans everywhere
especially where I sit
the world senses
the gravity
of the situation
high jinks in cahoots
with the setting sun
car tyres burning
a film still in production
leave your phone on the seat
your expat groceries
the expensive umbrella
the new laptop
your new haircut
never coming back
she’s still shouting in
the back of some other taxi
