Rex

Rex – Silhouette

Salford (via Manchester Museum), 20th June 2020

King of the Dinosaurs!

woken up by the sound of a wide brush,

and now sitting proud in a grand hall

towering over us all

while human children look and read,

what he liked, for a feed.

Food Fruit Treat

Trace of a strawberry

Salford, 31st May 2017

Trace

 

The cheesecake didn’t last that long

its remnants lying on the bottom of the crystal glass tray

shortcake digestive and chocolate crumbs

combine with the faintest of pink swirls

created as the strawberry sauce

dripped down onto the glass

The park grass in Greater Manchester looked a little different

November 6th 2016

The morning after the night before

when children watched with awe

at the colourful spectacle

appearing in front of enlightened eyes

The air laced with the smell of Gunpowder

Guido Fawkes’ ghost smiling away

Cinders of wood sit in  circles

where warming flames once stood

there’s now stillness, smoke and silence

in the early hours of a cold winters day

as dampened embers force out

The last traces of the bonfires life

a large black and silvery circle

set in a sea of green
