Andrew Johnston, from Sol

Hypermarket

The carparks divide
into continents;
the staff skate around, inside,
with hyperconfidence.

You go in looking
for a clock or a pear
and emerge, hours later,
with a deck chair;

As you cross the world
in search of the car
a fresh wind fills the canvas
somewhere off the coast of Africa.
