more deluded memories

This is a poem I wrote when I first lived in Manchester, c 1986-7, it was inspired by receiving a postcard from an ex, and the snow…..

Smoke

Arcs across the window pane

Bright light, bright white, the snowy northern city
and alone in my cold bed I write postcards to my past

Another cigarette, and endless cups of coffee,
It all seemed so long ago

Another life, another era,
A nicotine-tinged snapshot of a city far away
