Taking the long way round
Riding her bike along roads filled with sleepwalkers woken by lights in the sky they can't fathom
Great branches are down and the gutters and kerbs filled with pools of rainwater

This storm with a name which she yearned for has caught her
She's slightly undone as she thinks of the swirling wind brewing, and blowing her future wide open,
But she likes the view and in a way it feels new enough

Pedalling onward
Her gunmetal clouds fight with sunlight that blazes on brick walls and houses,
She knows that the waiting is over, the waiting is over, the time is October, the waiting is over
She's high now, and closer, impossible energies lifting her wheels and then floating her past all the rooftops the office blocks, bus stops and treetops, feels stars in her coat, no more fear in her throat
