Umbrellas

The droplets hang heavy

Sweat from the pipes

and run down the walls

The morning epileptic

The flashes dance

upon shallow asphalt pools

Trigger warnings echo

The car park trembles

Gives momentary consideration

of a pancake collapse

While commuters flee

mindless of their peril

Deaf, dumb and blind faces blur

devoid of emotion

Indifference their shelter

Like umbrellas in a maelstrom
