red arrows, falmouth, 13 August 2015.

Harbourscape thumbed

Chalk red, blue,

dirty sighs from sharp shined jets.

Abdominal muscles press through to spines and hands press

 

through grass blades to the earth; grip the cold metallic frame of deckchairs,

reach through gloves to control wheels –

 

And the eyes they overreach, searching the thin lines between joy and fear
