This is the fastest post I've ever written. But at least I've written a poem for Poetry Thursday - even though it's now Friday over here and so I'm officially late.
I may be back to edit and add more later.
Before moving to Devon Street in town
we'd only ever lived on gravel roads
without official names
and a centre-line of May weed.
On one trip back to the old place,
a blue-and-white County Council sign
had named 'our road'
Salisbury Road. We laughed.
A whole town emptied by urban shift
now full of useless signs
with awkward street names
naming roads of grass going nowhere.
