Part II

(NB.. moving straight on.. Part 2 is our first poem from the viewpoint of Michelle, our seemingly friendly ghost taking Andy on a tunnel leading to the next stage of their journey)

Part 2

Collapsing footsteps
Into the mud

She looked
Behind them once
Just before they got
To the doors
Of the project,

Thinking back
To what had happened
In the train station
To them
Only a short time before,

And the way he’d pushed
The shooter
Over the edge
Saving likely
At least

Dozens of people

If not hundreds

Surprising her with
His reckless courage,

Amazed they had got this far.
