The Walk before The Walk
I approach the bottom of College Lane at 15:39.
I move out the way of a teenage boy shuffling his feet in the crisp dried leaves.
Woolly hats, gloves and scarves.The buzz of the busy road.
The shuffling of leaves.
The call of a closing down sale.
Hands held. A cluster of uniforms in coats.
A rustling plastic bag floating in the wind.
A wreath of holly to my left welcomes me to the festive season.
A circular window. Distant clanking.
Save our NHS.
20 is plenty where people live.
A truck driver just beeped and waved at me.
What appears to be a window cleaner is cleaning a door.
Further down the street a van has on it’s dashboard.
“Window cleaner working”
Grand houses surround me. I like these houses along Westgate.
Traffic begins to build.
The Name Walk. M.
Everything is a little bleak.
There is a grass patch with an arching pavement. Why?
