To that cut out man

Today my shoe came untied at the worst time
It got tangled around my leg
I was on the train
It literally was causing me to fall down
I had to struggle to get stable
To kneel down while the train was moving
And tie my shoe while holding the railing with one hand

I was in front of a guy in a lavender jacked, sitting in a chair that would have helped to tie my shoe
He had side burns and a 70's tie
Light brown leather shoes pointed at the tip
A perfect 70s haircut

A ghost of a human
A cut out man mimicking an age he never knew
Sitting there watching an old man struggle with his shoe
and just sitting there
Getting off at Canary Wharf

The broken cut out man in a broken cut out world
