sold off childhood

girl on a motorcycle


Harley Davidson

posters gone from the walls

all toys given away

or sold


annuals from ten years

Guiness book of records’

music tapes

albums singles

collections passed on

pennant with The End

The Doors lyrics on

swimming badges

scout uniform


binned & gone

I’d been away four months

to join the Navy

first leave return

my old room redecorated


no longer my home

I was consigned to history

binned & gone
