I just wrote this based on a picture I took this afternoon.
Bottle on the floor Pearson Park Hull:
I took the bottle from the bedside,
mum said it’s time to rise and shine,
laying upright looking at the sky,
she said spring is about to arrive,
I put my love in tescos bags,
stash it, leave it, leaking in the bushes,
laughing at the faces passing by,
some friendly handshakes, some desprate hushing,
I grabbed the bottle by the bedside,
laid in the sheets of green,
left my sorrow in the overgrown grass,
the council said its time to wake up,
school kids shout; rise and shine,
leave my love in Aldi trolleys,
sit up, repeat, this is my life.
Grabbing bottles by the bedside.
