Garry Meek


Through woods at twilight, night creatures stir.
An owl’s head hits your gut like a monster, flying
Under the tree top canopy.
Fox stalks through the bushes.
If I was felled & dying, what it would do?
Getting to town and seeing a dog walker feels like finding an axe cutter in Grimm…
If you’ve been affected by any issues in this episode of Countryfile, then howl at the Moon. Will do about as much good as phoning. In the long run…
In the dark.
