A group of writers in Chichester coming together once a month for inspiration, collaboration and sensation

Nightmare #1

I.              Winter night—listen,

  Movement, unseen enemy.

  Weapons, guns and knives.

II.             Dangling from a rope.

  Grey uniforms, very worn.

  Tired, all the men.

III.            Sets of blood red hands.

  Crow’s beaks in my eye sockets.

  Men’s breath, visible.
