What’s for you?

The tube, the subway, the bus, the railway?

Whose cough will assault the back of your head?

Whose breath will you feel on the base of your neck?


What’s for you?

The cubicle, the counter, the shop floor, the office?

Whose going to apply their mask and assume their role for the day?

When you were eleven, did any of this feature in your vibrant imagination?


What’s for you?

Life, love, loneliness, death?

Will you control your mind or let it wander?

Will you submit to the trends, the friends, the bends?


What’s for you?

Pick a card, any card.

Remember the suit, remember the pip or face.

Keep it in your pocket and when you’re in, and when you’re out, look at it.
