Dizzy Road

It is a sticky hot day
sweating through thin layers
means summer
and maybe I didn’t drink enough water
because the tarmac
is slippery and glinting like a fish

blurry-eyed from paperwork in
shallow steps I’ve trod for months
mouth drying for a bus –

I had visions of
falling like a leaden sack,
metal-mouthed and
shimmering on the steaming ground and
passersby let me bake
