There’s a place for me in the sun

My #ReblogWednesday is this lovely poem by Luke Otley. Read more of his poetry at lukeotley.com


There was the bus

beastly, pulling up

I sprinted, nimble in my winkle-pickers

thinking ‘ahh, there she goes’

in a lurching, twerking cloud of fetid stink

It’s funny; in your rushed make-up

lines climbed around your eyes like the

footprints of tiny sea birds

in a riverbed

‘Two winters is too long’, I thought

There must be

a place for me


in the sun

The heavier the weight
I crave clear droplets of you
And sweat you away
