    The Commuter's Story


    "twig-ends tender to worm"

    lugs that in blind continence feed

    are themselves fed upon.

    In wave-wash Sanderlings

    skitter to probe the foam.

    The engine's rush,

    drives a coveyed flush.

    Within the rumbled hum.

    Beyond a silent film,

    a carriage pane scene.

    Tumbled stick borne

    tide worn, no remission,

    commutation

    by train

    What is particularly remarkable, Johntee, is that you have not only read the poem very perceptively, but have also been able to re-poetise that reading into something beautiful of your own. Quite extraordinary.
