New Poetry by Suzanne Verrall

Local Time
having negotiated 
the international departures lounge 
in my sleep 
I woke on the other side of the globe 
the currency was familiar 
the exchange rate was horrendous 
I patted the pockets of my pyjamas 
in search of a toothbrush 
while an orange cat rubbed 
figure eights between my legs 
and touching down 
another jetload of somnambulists
