Munday on Monday: Ticket window

Updated: 2013-08-19T04:08:42Z

Ticket window

At window where the ticket’s bought

The pane of glass contains a slot —

A tiny half-moon hole through which

Communication carves its niche.

This barrier, it would appear,

Means ticket lady cannot hear

The information I will tell;

I cannot hear her words, as well.

(The microphone — supposed aid —

Just amplifies this crude charade.)

So everything I say, say twice

And she repeats, though imprecise.

Transaction done, I step away…

Or were we done? I cannot say!
