I wasn’t expecting anyone
when the bell rang

The baby started crying
but the others didn’t say boo,
glued as they were
to the TV

My three and me
just us four now

I opened the door
to a well dressed man with a smile,
looking like he ought to be wearing a name badge
but he wasn’t

I stared for a moment
while he waited

He was in no rush
you could tell

“You’ve got the wrong address mate,”
I said, turning my back.

Then he spoke,

‘What is your desired destination,

“You what?”
I shivered.
I should’ve said excuse me.

“Your destination, where would you like to go?”

He stared at me.
I didn’t like it.
“I’m sorry,” I said,
“I don’t know.”
