19th January 2018

patterns of ice
fracture yesterday's puddles
heavy woodmoke

anxiety fears
bring forward the headache
of moving house
living in my grandmother's terrace
with the secret passage
to next-door's attic space
among the dust and cobwebs
and a thousand bluebottle carcasses;
an iridescent plane of wonder
before the rotting wooden frame
of a window overlooking Rowney Green
and the distant spires
on Newcastle's ship canal.
