Behind the cover of double glazing

Lies two feet in soft slippers – their owner

Immersing something to

Satisfy the tastebuds into their favourite

Sumptious , heavenly, cocoa




Long Ago, in a time before technology

Explorers told tales to their homelands of their adventures

Greatness was bestowed on the tellers and heroes of these tales and as time

Expanded, the tales were bound in leather and sold to others

Never to be forgotten – even if truth was stretched here or there

Deniability ? – Plausible , but a great tale to sell to visitors



the bag from school

hanging off the chair

contents on the kitchen table


containers by cabinets

awaiting.imminent arrival

of tea coffee and sugar


cardboard box

emptied at breakfast

now devoid. of contents


house vacated

by owners till later

no presence till afternoon

Mr frosts return

Salford, 11th December

They said the mercury was rising today

Well, someone didn’t inform Jack Frost and his winter imps

For as I write, sat perched in a chair by a radiator

They appear to have left pretty patterns

All over peoples car windows and roofs

Seems like he’s skipped across the skies too,

As there’s a definite blue streak across Salford skylines
