i have met our future

I have met our future
sat in a car
by the beach
windows slightly ajar
she with a tartan rug
loose over knees
him mouth open
head back, asleep
between a thermos
a proper one
not a chinese cheap
that matches the rug
maybe of soup
or weak tea
radio 4 humming
in the background
because we are now
slightly deaf
there may be sandwiches
or a cone if the weather
is warm
enough for our 24 degree
centrally heated bones
