    Good poem. Liked the sound of the rhythm. Just an advice (you don't have to take it) - could change the 2nd line of the 3rd stanza where you compared the cleanliness of the moon to a girl's face in school. Somehow, that line did not fit with the others. Otherwise excellent poem. Loved it.

    nice poem! Liked the way it started, the image, especially, of boyhood being hoisted on a crane...

    Exquisite juxtaposition throughout. For example, And poppies screamed by butchers' stalls. The poet waxes romantically nostalgic, while vividly recalling raw, unsavory details. A provocative poem, I love it.

    Wonderful poetry with phrases such as 'the moon was clean as a girl's face in school'. All inspired by my town of South Shields, for whcih I have tried hard to represent in poetry but could not hold a candle to this.
