..softer grey..

yes it is slate
tipped over from higher up

the quarry is closed this side
subsidence

the other side it is still worked
though further than before
as there is now a visitor
attraction

for tourists
so we don’t go there
anymore

yes I have been walking
about four miles or so

it was raining when we set off
in a panic

then after he left it came more
settled

i thought about the changes
i thought about the friends i
cannot visit

so passed by

walked back
a softer grey
