part of the Dowry EP, written on Dowry Place, on Hotwells Road in Bristol, first performed in the scout hut, Bristol, recorded by Phil Dodd on Hermitage Street, Cheltenham.


Marker pen scribbling the
answers on the
inside of a
jacket of a book.

High visibility coat
hung on a hook
at the back door
dad’s got his flat cap on.

Winter light’s got a weakness
that a boy just can’t resist and
I think that crack’s just wide
enough for light to get through it
and I remember it all
like it was only yesterday.
The half-brick hit the window
and we got up and ran away.
Why do I return
to the places that frighten me?
I eat meat with canine teeth
so why am I so pale and weak?
