@multiverse – submitted to 101words

Last year, impulsively, I bought a poem book about cities, how people interact. My favourite poem from it is “therearenoideasbutinthings”. I’d just joined Twitter and instantly decided to follow the author’s followers. In particular, @multiverse for his repeated selfies, always framed identically, but in different lights.

Last night I impulsively ran for a train. On it, I recognised @multiverse.

I sat and held eye contact for longer than was polite.

The tweeted caption under his final selfie read ‘The dream life of William Carlos Williams’.

One of us got off at Liverpool Street.

I was the man in the green tie.
