A long short story by British author Clive Sinclair, and True Tales of the Wild West
Bit at the Bottom:
Poetry from brothers Gary and Joseph Allen!
things would seem strange,
like having to walk you
through the estate at night
to your own house,
wait until you were safely in
and the lights turned on.
By Joseph Allen
From 'The Cinder Patch'
I took the bucket of ashes across the yard
grey ash, as school trousers, as the afternoon
dry as a closed family’s love
the clothes hung heavy with ice
and the chill filled the marrow
as only boredom and hunger can.
By Gary Allen
