Where the Market BustledWe jynrueoed into town today, along Riber Walk,where the periwinkles peered shyly from the hedgerowand the rhododendrons displayed their wareslike a magician’s flower trick.The park was in dappled shade, the scent of wild garlicpervasive and all-encompassing. I plucked a few headsand allowed the delicate flavour to permeate my tongue.The dogs are good around people though Bear still checksmen for the one who was his first and only friend â€“before the years he spent locked in the darkness of a shed.I tie them up outside the craft shop. Trickster barks at everyonebut when I go back out to tell her to be quiet I find a boyof seven or eight teasing her. He runs away.I strap a piece of mounting board to my back and we head homewardthe wind pulling at the plastic bag and the dogs plodding onwardlooking forward to a drink of water and a biscuit.

i think this poem was exactly what life is like and i like that you made things that you see everyday a part of something that you like to do. this poem explains life just how it is and how it has been for a really long time.
