On the Line

Ruth Hingston

snapshots of a train journey

a length of line punctuated sidings platforms crossings abandoned buildings silos boom gates burnt out cars flowering weeds bridges back lanes rusting corrugated fences

everyday lives glimpses and snatches of other places washing hung on lines crumbling brick toilets a window in a shed  vegetable gardens pruned backyards vacant blocks graffiti power lines roosting birds on telegraph wires hills ploughed red soil red shapes   in   bleached yellow grass
