Who needs evian ?

Coming live from the finest aquifers

rolling and travelling through rivers and streams

filtered through Mountains, Limestone and granite

and stored in great lakes and reservoirs

the purest and freshest water

and its coming direct to the tap

Rapids

Rapid

Rivers – no , Torrents of water

are hurtling down the mountainside

pooling in small craters, before

increasing in speed and heading

down the cliff face

swiftly down the waterfall

Raindrops (part ii)

Salford 2nd April 2018

rolling in from the irish sea

a thousand million raindrops fall from the heavens

in time, having made their way through the rivers and pipes , travelling

night and day, they’ll collect together and be

deposited into the local

reservoirs – where after a while – to be treated, they’ll travel

out via the city waterworks through

pipes cisterns and tanks and

someone somewhere, will enjoy fresh clean water

Driftwood

Salford, 3rd February 2018

Detritus floating en-masse down the ship canal

Readily aided by the boats and the water

Is floating aimlessly towards the basin gates

Full stop only happening upon hitting the booms where each stick gangs

Together forming a pretty pattern on the

Waters surface

Overjoyed geese, plunder the booty, piling

One large stick on top of another till a safe place for eggs has been built, whilst

Downstream, a boat with a foriegn name (and crane) is coming to pick up the leftovers
