Working Late, by Louise Longson
Looking down: we are all of us looking
down, intent on finding a clue to break
the code of silence, stirred only by the night
-breeze from a passing train, pulling
at the blind. Unseen by him, she notes
the letter falling to the carpet, the soft drop
of his shoulders as he reads, the
space between them growing into
the silent green tufts, washing over
the white walls. She files it away
with her feelings.
Louise Longson lives in rural West Oxfordshire. She is published by One Hand Clapping, Fly on the Wall, Dreich, Nymphs, The Ekphrastic Review and Reach. A qualified psychotherapist specialising in trauma and enduring mental health issues, she is currently working to support those distressed by loneliness and social isolation. Recently, she has finally cleared enough of her own head-space to pursue her writing in earnest. Twitter @LouisePoetical
