Poem by Paul Beech



her multi-coloured hair

distracts the eye

from her bones



a wasteland

sycamore spinners spin


haggard on a bench scribbling

he sips soup

dreams of fame


curlew sunset

a small abandoned boat

in the saltmarsh


a single line

on a stained page

“her multi-coloured hair”


Paul Beech
