365 Poems in 365 Days: Not a True Story

Here are some things that are not true:
This train journey is a pain
I am tired of the colour blue
I’m not worried that my jacket’s stained
The woman on the phone is fascinating
I’m perfectly happy with the people in this carriage
The sun through the window is excruciating
Whoever she’s talking to is contemplating marriage
The guy without a ticket is not annoying at all
The vibration is an unpleasant sensation
My writing has run straight into a brick wall
The next stop is not my station

Based in part on a train journey I took, this is number 258.
