W-X: | Wythenshawe to Xaverian College


Hardy’s Well

Walking through a field in England,
or what would have been,
before the motorways, tramlines and
suburban development.

Withington, Northenden, Didsbury,
Fallowfield, Rusholme.
A Unitarian Chapel from 1700
faces the 1960’s ‘Toast Rack’.

Blanck Mass to Lemn Sissay,
we transect place and time.

W-X, walking into a hex,
wilting in the spring sunshine
and wishing for words.

But Hardy’s Well is dry.
