I think we might argue more
if you move to North London –
it’s just, y’know, so far.
Break up, even, it is a possibility;
there are so many Tube stops
to make me stop and think
along the way, that’s all.

And the trees just seem a bit grey
all that way out there –
even though I’m sure they’re not really.
In fact I heard Hampstead Heath
is lovely in the summer.
