A familiar face on the circle line

A familiar face on the circle line

Yesterday, on the circle line train from Edgware Road

I saw someone who looked uncannily

like a version of yourself, thirty years into the future

as if that future self had travelled back in time

and was, for reasons I couldn’t possibly guess, 

riding the circle line

the bit that goes eastbound via Baker Street

and Kings Cross

As I say, they really did look

very much like I expect you will look

in about thirty years time

Now – do you want the good news or the bad?
