I walk in the opposite direction

I walk

in the opposite direction to everyone else

going about the business of the day

meeting no one

everyone has fear etched upon their faces

and wisps of grey fog in their mouths

heads bowed

intent on not meeting someone’s eye

trying to be on time

like school children behind their desks

before the master walks in.

Marcus gained notoriety for his book: “The seven deadly sins”. Spotting a sales opportunity, he released one chapter at a time, trying cash in. The second chapter:"Gluttony" is famous for its first line: "Marcus was born with a spoon in his mouth". Then came “Sloth” which he never finished. By the time “Envy” came out he was wishing he'd started writing about something else. The fifth chapter is called “I-I-Irony" was on its way to becoming an international bestseller but he had to withdraw it for false representation. Furious with Random House, who published it, he went on a terrifying rampage, shouting: "I'll show you the meaning of the word "random" while smashing the place up. For this, he spent a short spell at her Majesty's pleasure. While bending over to pick up a bar of soap, he got the will to go on. Contritely, the last book is entitled: "Pride hurts".
