Eurostar

Tuesday, October 16, 2018. Daily Brit Wit.

Eurostar: 

Noun, trademark

The high-speed passenger rail service that links London with various European cities via the Channel Tunnel.

“Life is a high-end escape
waiting to happen
this elaborate puzzle
known to all
yet incredibly so
individual
jagged edges
kissing hello
or off to the four corners
complex plots
meant to weave together
until it brings me
this precise moment
saying goodbye
on a sixteen hour
Eurostar ride.”
