Concrete is My Least Favourite Colour


This side of the wall

is sun and shade and shadow

a clumsy narrative

like that Javanese puppet show

I couldn’t quite follow


On the other side     a lion

is camouflaged on a beach

And you remind me

that a beach at times is not a beach

Is sea


This is the fifth and final poem in the #filmvpoetry collaboration between Katrina and the visual artist, Tim Ridley. Tim now has until Mon 16 March to make a short film in response to Katrina’s poem.
