Train stations

Train stations used to mean adventure:
Seasides, sandy sandwiches and bags of sweets.
Now train stations are every day;
Mean work.
Another long commute,
Another journey alone.

Airports used to mean adventure:
Ice-creams and buffet breakfasts
Long longed-for in glamourous locations.
Now airports mean overdue hellos
And too-short goodbyes.
