Built

Automatic writing piece created whilst participating in a Signal Films & Media Creative Writing Group session. Tuesday 30 October as part of Doremi2018.

Of the industrial
the infrastructure
of this town
that a lot call home

That builds
and unbuilds
around us all

And changes
morphing
growing 
almost breathing

A deep sigh
a sound
a sight
from far away 
and yet so close 

To the wheels in the mud
that twist and turn
and clog with stones
to stop it moving
on

Over the shoreline
picking its way over the oyster shells
crushed into the ground
which make a strangely
satisfying sound

Tyres clogged with mud
through which screws are sent
in circles
twisting 
circling

Wheels
over sand
past the built 
structures
frames

Scaffolding 
towering over the small wheels
spinning
twisting

Tracks created in the sand
through which others
have travelled
through which others
will travel

Tracks are built
and found
washed asunder
by the water

Docks
seagulls
calling 
over the towering sands
