Wombwell Days

Hand rolled half smoked white tab ends decorate pavement, road outside a terrace:  random fortune telling sticks

 Behind bus stop sharp fresh cut wheat field tossed crushed empty beer cans, discarded pizza boxes: harvest.

Metal hanging basket black bin bag carpeted weedfull nailed beside front door Green tulip bulbs in bakers window

washing lines strung between house and back fence yellow, blue, red plastic washing pegs at intervals: ready

Between houses white scratched wooden panelled door leans against one wall no door handles: one door closes

Warm Summer rain green bubbled hole top green recycling bin, rusty six inch nail outside broken gate: a to do?

Broken glass gleam on verges brick wall bottom green spaces between roads, glinting like children’s cut fingers.
