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 poem is the final poem in the #filmvpoetry collaboration with the visual artist, Tim Ridley. Tim now has 2 weeks, until Monday 16 March to make a short film in response to this poem.
