UK: Swinton Scene

Swinton, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

[Swinton is a town in Salford]
 
Fog swirls, curls
around vans, cars,
 
slips ghostlike
through bare branches.
 
A neighbour coughs
into a handkerchief
 
made (he says)
from Greengate cotton.
 
“Yesterday, before the snow,
three old horses
 
munched wet grass
as I walked through the relics
 
of the Wet Earth Colliery,
which on reflection,
 
were beautiful objects
of time and rust.”
