This period of lockdown has given me an opportunity to have a clear out, and going through old cupboards I’ve discovered scraps of paper with old …Forgotten Fragments #1
I’m hoping you guys can view this via Twitter. In Sicily, under lockdown, people coming together to make music. Check out some of the videos in the comments too.
There were definite signs of Spring out there today. Glimpses of sunshine, flowers coming through, the solar lights on tonight. Will still be pissing down weekend, mind.
I posted this a few weeks ago on my poetry blog, stating that I know that there’s parts of it that I’ll change, but it’s of interest to record the first birthing lines.
I’ve since deleted the opening three lines, it now begins:
the hulls and husks
of scuttled ships
shadow the sky
I’ve tweaked a few others lines and added much more.
I’ve also renamed it Rooftop Blues. I’ll let you know how it goes.
