Stepping Sideways Into Always

QUEEN’S PARK DRIVE, AIREDALE, CASTLEFORD.

‘Pleasure Trip’ – Primal Scream

Today, after a rather restless, feverish night, I came up here to Yorkshire in anticipation of my WORK EXPERIENCE PLACEMENT at the new WEST YORKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE, LEEDS.  I am, of course, staying here at my Gran Winterfood’s.

Later:

You fell into the schemes of my reason
And built a new past for me;
Falling, flowing – forever growing
Oft out of reach and out of time
‘most liquid; beauty true

Stepping sideways into always
With alluring eyes and sighing gaze
In darkened rooms’ enlightened truths
The fires within leapt without
Never extinguished; legend

These memories wrapped in shadow
Take some from my store;
Falling, slowing – forever going
Like leaves in autumn, drifting
Kicked and trodden down
