Hillsborough (tribute poem for the diaster in 1989)


Suspended in the
Silent, stubborn wind.

Rubber was split bent double
Across the pitch
Like an un-answered prayer.

Ghostly, dismantled
Across a sky of open wounds
Substituting noise for silence
Over lepping lane
With fear watching over
The scoreboards.

Memories dismantled across stands
And dissolved into a absence
Half rubbed out
With justice rattling
In the silence.


(A short tribute to the terrible events which happened at Hillsborough)
