The Gap

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Two esteemed academics
In high-definition
In a stately home
Discussing Disraeli

Meanwhile
In another land
Another world
A young girl awakes
In the slum
Steels herself
For another long day of work
Man after man after man

And in between the two?

Knowing

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Knowing what has gone
Savouring what is to come
Surfing in between
