Photograph of Neil Fawcett

Neil Fawcett is a poet from Stockport. He spends his mornings mincing words. His afternoons and early evenings feeding a hungry young family. His evenings studying poetry at The Manchester Writing School and doing the odd reading here and there. He is 49 years old and when he grows up he wants to be a good poet.

French Fields by Neil Fawcett

Home keys not pressed
rest.
Crosses trace the contours
white.
A chorus of silenced
chords,
string across the wind.
