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.”
