Two sets of traffic congestion, three lanes wide, unexpected on the M25 during that drive.
My own water congestion became a painful bladder full. Extremely and utterly a cruelling gruel.
Needing to let go,
Not drip drip drip
But falling drops like heavy rainfall.
Pulled over and did a mini wee wee in a my metal coffee cup.
My body squeezing the pressure, the drops snd the tops free.
Then stopping, ashamed in the car.
Thinking how to the other drivers I looked bazaar with my panicked face.
No my best look, absolutely no grace.
I tried to hold it in to the service station,
The stiff upper lip tightness of my nation.
I whined and moaned that the wee might flee.
I had to stop later on the hard shoulder and pee.
