Back yard

A cargo ship quietly steams out of the harbour towards the open sea. I stand on the beach and wave. The crew on the deck wave back. I smile.

Pigeons, palm trees, pink washing on the line. Back gardens. Slaters roofing, joiners laughing, window cleaners peeking in windows. A row of red lockups and moss the colour of lime green jelly.
