Heffalumps

Perhaps its my inner pooh-bear

at play but i’m

crazee about these

happy jungle animals

you’ll see they have big ears and long noses

definately adept at reaching fruit and nuts

elevated in the tallest trees

really high up

many seen in the jungle, but also seen elsewhere

Identity

Identity

Salford, 25th October

If you take a look in the mirror, you may spot

Dozens of little things that make you up

Each little thing – coming from a family member

Notably, your mum or dad – and then your Nannas and Grandads

The look of your face, to the colour of your hair

Inherited , from some branch of your family tree

They may be little things – but they are what , in the end make you

You.
