Haiku song Well how should I know This is how families work Like an insider does Each day's headlines bring From the unbearable grief I run away inside Shall I live that long I am growing into them Always old my hands
In Still Air Like This In Still Air Like This You can see the mountain from here In Still Air Like This Demolished buildings stand near In Still Air Like This Dormant goes the grass In Still Air Like This To the sound of broken glass In Still Air Like This The spiders grow fat In Still Air Like This At dusk the swooping bat In Still Air Like This Scents build from their source In Still Air Like This Vines stake out their course In Still Air Like This Cranes pierce the sky In Still Air Like This Let sleeping dogs lie
Slow Train To Brighton Black pool ditches along the tracks Dimpled ponds gather in clay pastures Tan among old red brick arches Back garden’s long salient additions Grit bins rusty pad lock CCTV attached to each lamppost platform Magpie on Magpie scuffles When in odd numbers Leaves turning or already past Silhouetted crow crowned oaks Against a gossamer sky Chocked ivy trunks Poke-o-dot nests Hedgerows line the contours green plaid Rust-emerald-brown-grey Speeding along backwards Its grace gives way
