SLUIZEN

Poetic view of a day with many locks going to Stratford on Avon 8/8/2014

squeak and grease 970 kilos
sinking feeling 44 bridges 45 locks
yarningale dripping drops
finding ways in black lace

sinking feeling

sinking feeling

too short a stay for a good look at
liverwort forest
entering tree tunnel up/down
to the next number 37
thinks castle while flag stows past
a treat of bonsai behind the gate
spider looking for new home
not the hat

narrow bridge

narrow bridge

narrow bridge mind your head
cows shape the oak tree
a blue splash of the Kingfisher
bridge 50 turn the page

oak

oak

empty sweet water mussel
silver line on broken bricks
purple candles with still flames
standing driftwood with falling bark
uprooted duck
feel the draft drifting

loose drift

loose drift

hold on and go go slow
straight and go ok its done
slimy twist on the surface
the bike it holds the bike bike can’t steer

oooh oooh

oooh oooh

jump pull steer
7 more to go
working hard too hard
7 more to go 2 hours
7 7 7

head down
6 more to go

too small onwards
head down 5 more to go

head down 3 more to go

just breath
a bit of drifting
oooh wait
one push one run
head down 2 more to go

lock forest

lock forest

no more energy for drop photos
no time

it is like a dance
a bit to the left through the knees bend steer
gas back steer bowing down
head down 1 more to go

dropping off

dropping off

just 1 more in number 50
last one last one
no more to go
no more no more no more
moor i don’t care just moor
