Post-run reveries…



I recall two magpies

The bushes around Innovation Way are getting more and more overgrown.

I still cannot really….

cry to be honest. With you.

There are kids fishing at the fountain with their dad and I assume dads mate.

A fatherless jogger progresses along Lakeside.

Flies of thunder attracted to the luminous Karimor top.

A feint smell of glue.

Run out across a surrounding field in the hope that I find the answer to something.

X would scramble nervously underneath The Europarc advertising boards facing the A/M180.


The smokers smoke outside the factorious factory. A car driver waves me on.

Trying to find clues in the capitalistic detritus.

The discarded breakfast sign sleeps just off Genesis Way.






A dispute about keys to …blip in The Centre of Innovation.

‘Sorry – we’re closed…’

Then the estate agent returns a call at the last moment and grants me the keys.

A serious man of business leaves – no tie.

Undone top button of white shirt.

He drives past in a silver Mercedes.

Birds sing within the trees of innovation.

The office manager says something about reversing his car.

Europarc 19.04.18
I’m waiting on Genesis Way in my car.
The sun is blinding my eyes as I recall passive stares from the shirtless fishers by the lake.

A gentle sadness…
The obligatory fountain has stopped.
The Haiths bird food hopper is on repeat.
A perpetual hum of productivity…



Origin Way. Summer. June. 17.20 hours. Friday evening.

A perpetual backdrop of scowling traffic ebbed and flowed along its A180 tributary.

The latest intake of notional students lolled around on the red sun-baked paving of Origin Way.

Europarc nine to fivers began exiting the site for a weekend of prescribed leisure whilst security guards, process workers and cleaning operatives remained in situ.

X registered a moment of sublimation as a crow hopped from one lamp post to the next.

The lights transformed from dim grey glow to an illuminated orange as the fowl of the air landed upon each pedestal.

A dyed blonde-haired woman in her early thirties drove past.

She lit a post-work cigarette upon exiting Origin Way.

X lurked among the carefully tended shrubbery – it’s gaze gently resting upon an empty glass balancing on a steel bollard.

The fresh-faced students continued to bathe in a collective subconscious haze.
