THIS IS A REWORK OF THE START OF MY POETRY OUTBURST. I LOVE BRIGHTON. THE AREA WE LIVE IN IS KNOWN AS HANOVER

HANOVER

 

 

Rapped in rolls of confetti,

Falling on heads of newly weds

Anointed in samish brick building facilities

With children nurseried

Babies close carried next to heart slung safely

Over shoulder whilst holsters hold tools and hammers to protect their houses.

 

Packed into boxes and parked into the warm embracing earth

Rot with worms and leaves and decaying interest

Memoirs written of outrageous artefacts

Stories of crazy playtime and pastime.

 

Bathing houses into flats of comfort

Working men’s pub time washed out and dreaming as the lords who paid them

 

Academic world changing young guns pulling pints to pieces

Decibels to crush the sleeping babies and parents

Colour changing hair as they surmount impossible charges

Pushing grunting puffing on pedals to reach a summit of succession

Rest with tea and crumpets in the park of trees, with ducks a quacking and pigeon gulled haven.

Love our place

AUG 10
