13th April 2018

unceasing rain
tapping on the window

guilty pleasures
lunch hours spent in Broad Street
the comic shop and collector's store
looking for board games
selling daleks from broken boxes
and pre-ordering packs
of Magic the Gathering cards
and Call of Chthulu.
The breath-in-the throat moment
of opening a booster
and finding,
amongst the common lands and creatures,
that elusive Rare;
a Shivan Dragon or
(dare I even breathe?)
an Alpha issue Mox Jet.
Then back to work
where the endless queue of the jobless
sign their weekly name.
