.montgomery two.

student of timetables
me
now with a free pass to most places
the official times
saved to my phone and noted on paper in my back pocket , nearly lost in the chip shop that only accepts cash

it fell yet we saw it and retrieved
1.28 pm the bus home so we gets there real early and waits
by the walker

he had trecked from forden the three miles up and down
used to the flatness of portsmouth wanted a ride back yet nothing forthcoming limped his return

1.50 pm with no bus arrived the timetable lady was contacted and she explained the bus was due at 2.30 pm that my internet were wrong and no one was bothered what it said at bus stops

on her say so
nipped round to the toilets then waited patiently to 2.30 when a bus arrived going the wrong way

spoke to the timetable lady who admitted being wrong that the 1.30 came in late possibly while i was in the toilets
the next correct and last bus now 3.30 pm

i wondered what to do if that one did not arrive and secured an unnecessary plan
fortunate to afford

when safely aboard thought of those recently waiting at airports to escape
my small adventure was as nothing

sat on the town hall steps in the late september sun
