Ameera did not talk about
Her family back home in Iran
Nor her difficulty in running
The trade with many
Global competitors

Yana did mention about
Her child in the custody of
Mother in Petrograd
Next month she will go back
To return after three months

Sophia is well settled
With her boyfriend
Ready to pick her up
After her night shift

‘Join me for a drink’
‘I have my breezer’
‘Have a smoke’
‘Sorry I don’t smoke’
‘What are you doing to night?’
Waiting … Waiting…

Music is breathtaking
Rock stars in their
Leather jackets
Moving rhythmically
Men and women
In pairs
Walking the night
To its darkness
And into the light at the
End of the human tunnels
