working at home

a blue pause
a post-school-run break
bridged by a glossy and caffeine
priming the day
and salving the pain
before I pick up my pen
before I take up my tablet
and pour myself out once again

One of five poems written by Steve Page in response to paintings at the BEAT (Borough of Ealing Art Trail) exhibit at St John's Church, West Ealing in September 2018.
