. poole hill .

you remember the job, down the alley off          poole hill,

bookbinders’ apprentice. wrapping books in brown paper,

tidy edges. feeding paper for the ruling,      stitching backs,

watching fingers bleed.

 

formative years.

endless trouble,

one way,

and  another.

 

up poole hill

or down.

 

you kissed me.

 

i tied the book

then.

 

i do it now.

 

sbm.

daily post – apprentice

  1. Ah.
    An almost linear narrative.
    Must buy your book.
    It must have been quite something to edit the selection.
