Meet me for lunch at the town hall.
I’ll be on the bench to the left,
under those four guys in the alcoves.
Come before noon ―  I know how you love
the chimes. Bring some of those cute
sandwiches you make with the crusts
cut off. I’ll pick up some McEwan’s.
It never rains in Manchester ―
but bring an umbrella.
