Streets in the Sky

The old building stands tall but gloomy instead of majestic like it once promised. An architect’s vision turned in to a reality granting him success. It was supposed to be revolutionary, ahead of its time. There was a generation that once described it as paradise. The grass once looked green and the sky was once…

1 Green Bottle

This is something slightly different- lately I’ve been examining the way people’s actions carry an echo and intertwine with each other which is what I have attempted to capture here. Bottles thrown in to the recycle bin as the pub closes. The clatter echoes around awaking the tramp lying in a small sheltered ledge. A…

Crossing you

I lose something every time I cross you: my breath, my ability to speak, my balance, even the thought of you has me crashing around and spilling things and being more careless particularly about my heart.

Cigarettes 

There’s no smoke without fire, don’t light a cigarette if you won’t smoke it, that’s what you said but we set each other alight and it’s going to be a long time till we see the smoke rise up from cinders. Our cigarette will always go from my mouth to yours and refuses to be…

Learning 

You wanted her to learn but you did not teach. She read but did not interpret the same way as you, you don’t have to teach her to overhaul her way of thinking but to grow it as if her brain has another branch and you take some leaves from hers. There is nothing wrong…

Tremor
