Just wait here, they said
Someone will join you in a minute,
explain the job. Would you like coffee?
Whatever you do, don’t move.
That was an hour ago. No coffee
I like the view well enough
Plenty to see, but I need the loo.
It’s nice up here. Quiet,
plenty of time to think.
I wonder what Jill would say.
Get a job, she said,
Anything. There’s work if you look.
Perhaps I’ll give it another hour.
