Engine, outside the power hall at Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

Every mechanic knows – it’s

Not the wheels , but the engine that

Get’s a driver from A to B

It’s truly – the heart of any transport

Naval, bus, car or motor bike

Exception – if you’re reliant on foot or pedal power

Fragile heart

i gave her my heart

and she took a hammer to it

shattering as it did in pieces

across the dance hall floor

in one moment

and a fleeting goodbye kiss

she left me standing in the middle of the sparkle lit room

with a crowd and a mark

Filled the passing hours

with nothing but a face

casting eyes over

old photographs

took time to rebuild

the emotional jigsaw

a piece of the jigsaw lies missing

could that be you ?
