Creative Writing, Venue

An experimental study of defamiliarisation

Sea shells

Brighton waves have left their imprint

Imperfections eroded to nothing, smooth sides

Soft like rocks in their hundreds, hugging your hand as they pull you inside

Chocolate swirls like liquid eyes dripping

There is a home in the curve of its white marble

Dent perfectly fitting a thumb

Pushed together one curving swell

Stark white, warm hotel sheets

Hands full of ‘could-be’s

Swan-arched,

Each crunch closer to the one left in Bassenthwaite
