Woman in Black

Ten minutes.

I don’t want to be late and miss my train.
I’m always
Just on time.

I get dressed.
A black top with long sleeves,
A black knitted jumper
With holes,
Black jeans,
Worn and faded,
Black shoes,
Nike Flyknits, trainers I thought were
That I wear for the gym
(The only ones I like wearing).

It’s raining outside,
I put a statin black bomber jacket on,
Silky and smooth,
Thin in thickness.
I hope it’s not too cold.

I quickly glance at myself in the mirror
As I leave,
I realise
I’m wearing all black.

Women in black lead colourful lives,
I read once.
