DEATH MACHINE (11/5/1995)

A bank in summer
A ripped underwear page
A magazine of lists
Things making noise

Bridge like tread of shoe
Hangs over them
Tatty rope, him on the end
Swinging


Note: I like the simplicity of this. It reminds me of the river bank near the house where I grew up in Spalding, Lincolnshire. That's what I was thinking about when I wrote it. The bareness of it evokes the boredom I sometimes felt living in a small town where there was nothing to do.
