Thursday 19th October


A carousel turns but the music is too quiet, 
A young mother smiles at her young child, 
Riding a plastic pony, 
A skinny girl walks fast with a cardboard coffee, 
Pale skin accessory, 
A thin Blue rinse passes the flower stall, 
Any bunch for a quid,
Henry Moore leaves statues in Bronze worth millions, 
Defying poverty & hard times, 
Alone on the precinct, 
Between coffee & greeting card chains,
A half eaten pizza goes cold on a bench, 
With no one around, 
What’s that then?
