Hull @ The New Adelphi 12/03/17 #poetry


The words inside your head
Are not the only ones

Roasted potatoes
The kindness of strangers
The art of listening
Lasagna, lasagna, lasagne

Get on with it!
Get stuck in it!
We are all just gorillas in the mist
Reading the tea bags
Decoding the footprints in the butter

Erratic data streams penetrate the airwaves
A yellow light guides the way
The awareness of sandwiches
Matching erasers and the Magic Words
Ed Sheehan and Little Mix Glory Days
Pink and white and blue
and more pink A world of pink
Soothes, coats and relieves
Never embarrassing

Let’s paint our new lives on old plates
Let’s share a Twirl
Air and chocolate mixing in our mouths
Let’s transport back together
Let’s wake up together
