Sunday 30th April

HAPPY FACE:

Where are you working?
Where am I workin’?
Round the corner,
Next to the scaffolding,
How’s it going?
It’s goin’ alright,
We get a load of you in here,
How long you gonna be?
Ha ha ha – well..,

We just moved in together,
Been together for a year,
Got a baby,
You know how it is,
Need the space,
You know anywhere?
What’s the place you’re working on like?
Let me know,
We gotta move,

That place across the road,
It got shut down,
I went there for years,
Kick-boxing after school,
Then,
One day,
I went there & it was gone,
There’s a lot going on,
Everything is changing

Friday 28th April

FIRST FRUITS OF SPRING:

Waiting for a late one that never turned up,
Whisper,
Bang,
Wipe an eye,

Carrier bag,
Lean back against the glass in sweats & Addi’s,
Traffic in the street,
Clean world on the end of a stick,
I don’t know your name

Tuesday 25th April

BONE WORK:

It’s a chat up line in suede shoes,
Tight jeans,
Tight beard,
Tweed jacket,

Runs a shop on South Street,
Local boy,
Mirrored shade,
Number two buzz cut,

Hangs around,
Fidgeting,
Waiting for his coffee,
Making the girl behind the counter beam
