gear in order

check tires pumped
gear in order
brakes on downhill

steep to the pit pond
along the Transpennine Trail

hear distant forklifts,
metal on metal in workshops

we cannot see for high greenery
travel under bypass bridges
busy roads

beside sparkling redirected streams
full of bike tires shopping trolleys

across the bridge to RSPB Old Moor
bigger than we thought

1733 carved on stone lintel
above the door past
a teaching step perhaps

used by John Wesley

use bike lock

eat first on wooden verandah
in sunblaze on first floor
folk with massive lenses

on small cameras

walk to the hides kingfisher
lapwings heron willow tunnels

her flat shoes hurt her ankle

return home uphill

only takes half an hour

sit down shoes off
raspberry wine
tomato and basil cheese
Jacob’s Cream Crackers
and TV quizzes
