my disappearing role in disappearances

each ache of longing

for the good old times

becomes lost when coming up against reality

where the modernised live

in sterile places not the damp terraces of Crumbling Town

doors of which I repeatedly try to re-enter in my mind

but even they are attempting to make good their escape

leaving me alone in the new cold

stubbornly refusing to adapt.

it really must have such a dramatic effect on those who have no choice when it comes to their old ways of life being changed despite the questionable 'improvement'

I could feel the dreariness in this one Stef.

Stef, have you been watching too many of the Victor Meldrew series? Times may be a-changing but are they doing so for the better?
