In England

by Luke Otley

Whisky wheeze in England

Sniffly nose and blackbags in England

Twinkled rummy eyes in England

Chainsaws carve up sad trees in England

No room on the roads in England

Pints held by hands with faded blue stretched tattoos in England

European women with wide grins and branch legs on the tube smiling in England

Aloof girls under stained arched grand station roofs in England

Pension collector weather mention-er and queue dodger in England

Still raining in England
