Carriage

#fowc #carriage

Sat by the platform

it waits for the sign as

gentlemen and ladies alike

now make their way to their furnished cabins

a wonderful journey to places wonderful

lakes mountains and streams – but they have to wait for the flag

Metrolink Stowaway

Eccles to Manchester, 5th September 2017

Metropop

Manchester – here is a public announcement

Even the local birds

Think their dinner is taking a liberty , as it

Rides along the tracks without a pass, for now

On system lines from Salford to Ashton, and Bury to Altrincham

Like old Mancunian cotton weavers, they leave

Interesting little webs like they’re decorating the tram

Note the way though – they stay still on their threads when spotted

Kings of the carriage, till the arrival of a cleaner.
