9.02.22: Thames Walk
Stonemasons Street, London

SE1 Thames Walk: This city is my familiar. Its lights falling in twinkling pieces across the bridge and through the rain. Side streets. Alleys with ancient names. The sound of my footfall joins the river’s echoes — clattering dishes, cutlery, table-talk, riverside cafés. A couple want a romantic photo, asking politely. He hands me his mobile phone, and I say, “Be careful who you hand over your phone to; it might be the last you see of it.”

No hyphens to grab
There’s no white space at high tide
River of questions

    • My dentist is in London, as is my optometrist, so I make the trip up there at least twice a year. We used to make an effort to do dinner or theatre once a month before Covid struck. I miss that.
