Sarah L. Dixon – Construction



Frank places the blue block saying “Blue!”

picks up a “pink” one that is green

and with a double yellow continues

to build a structure like those we’d seen

in a village designed by Gaudi

on our first foreign trip

long before thoughts of marriage crowded

and before we found another use for my hips,

bearing the child whose construction amazes us

as he places a blue block, saying “Blue”.



Sarah L Dixon hosts Quiet,quiet,LOUD! in Manchester. She has recently been published in Loose Muse, BOMP3 YorkMix and Ink, Sweat and Tears. She is taking The Quiet Compere format on a tour of the North in 2014 thanks to Arts Council funding. Find out more here:
