Two Poems

By Abbi Flint

The view from now

Standing in a field above the city
I look to you
where the edge of land meets skies,
where the shoulders of the bridge would be

beyond the grey rivers of the M18, M62
quieter now
to lanes that wind through wind-farms,
to a land made safe by banks and drains

through the Westwood’s pasture
where sheep and cattle idle in hollows,

back to the hospital room
where you shared my first breath.
