The Walk before The Walk


I open my milkshake and drink half.

I guess as to which way to walk and pass Cambrai avenue.

I know I’m going the right way.

Two schools girls are gossiping down the road as I take the last swig of my milkshake.

Perhaps this wasn’t the best way to walk seeing as though I now have to double down.

“Please mummy”

“It won’t fit”

“Please mummy can you just try it”

“I know for a fact that it won’t fit”

“Please mummy”

“The stick is too big for the hole”

A child and mother have stopped before me The child was riding a scooter.

I put my milkshake bottle in the bin that stands next to the notice board I have been staring at.

Had they just left the Christian science society?

I notice Lal’s barber shop. A small building. Quite nice. I know someone who lives around this area. I wonder if he gets his hair cut there. Lal's. There's two L's in Lal. This is the second L of my Name Walk...
