Thomas Street

Anne Culhane’s Piece on Thomas Street
Walking down Thomas street and loving the names of the shops ; ‘watercolours’ ‘Bella Italia’ ‘Medjana’ the names roll off the tongue.
I see the brightness of the street. Its wideness makes me look left and right as I try to catch it all. People strolling, children skipping.
I hear snippets of chat (‘Fair play Walter!’  ‘Did you get that dress?’ ‘Johnny, don’t run’,  ‘Will you be much longer’ ‘Did you like your food Madam?’ as I pass the outdoor cafes.
Laughter pulses up with the smoke from the cigarette, twirls in the air and gone and the space taken with the next sentence. More laughter.
