Backstreets of academe

Some recent sightings in the backstreets of Cambridge, not exactly dingy but not well heeled either. Raffish encounters with odds and ends…

Golden tunnel

to nothing good

Blog7

There never was a road

Nothing is barred

Walk through the wall…

Threads of Nothing

Just a bundle

of threads

blue wisps of nylon

frayed, unbound,

holding to nothing

but one corroded bar

draping to the ground

without a purpose

a lost story

Shadow Bike

No effort needed

no weight, no drive

just shadows on the wall –

what sort of person

without colour or substance

will ride this away?

Weed on the wall

Caramel

of decaying bricks

living

on crumbled

clay

SV

Surely victorious?

Suddenly vanished?

Memorial

to better times…

A blue plaque

that doesn’t let you down,

doesn’t remind you

of last year’s heroes…

 

Broken PanesBlog6

Reflected

in dingy

orange gold

front door

in broken glass

somebody’s hope

somebody’s dream
