>The Diaspora

>London
Being lazy. Three trains cancelled. Tuts and frowns as I squeeze my bike on at a colourless Stratford. Elbows. Feet. Blackberrys. Ipods. The Metro. Mortgages. Dan Brown.

Liverpool street. Doors, suits, barriers.

A public school accent.

“Yorkshire? Saw the sticker on your bike”

“Yes. Keighley. You?”

“Harrogate.”

Two bright grins in the walls of grey, and we are gone.
