First to Arrive

So human and romantic, Kim! I especially love your alliteration and assonance in these lines:

eyes the pigeons pecking
at breakfast croissant crumbs
demolished at her feet.
Too early or too eager,

writing in north norfolk

Under the eye
of the station clock
she begins to pace,
scans for a familiar face,
eyes the pigeons pecking
at breakfast croissant crumbs
demolished at her feet.
Too early or too eager,
embarrassed when she finally sees him
in the surge of crowd.
