another pretty colour, another break for air

Tender, sensuous and perfectly poised, another pretty colour, another break for air announces the arrival of a compelling new poet.

Away from another pretty colour, another break for air


Seems to you I have fallen out of the world,

for I am a hundred miles away in a land

where car journeys unveil a rove of pylons              

through the fields’ green and yellow mosaic.

I could follow their bowed wires home-home,

over the farmsteads, the Two Hoots stable. 

Here, lanterns pearl their daytime respite.

Hedgehog scuttles the lawn where I sailed

the boat of my climbing frame, swung flight

from twists of orange rope and lined snap-

dragons freckled with pebble ground pollen

across the slab to trade on my lawn travels. 

You’re right, I have fallen out of the world,

for I am a hundred miles away in a land

where someone gives me every meal

and the clothes I brought with me are clean

as a glint of silver by the time I say goodbye

in the home-home voice I keep from the world.
