Rd. East (Alan Whitfield)

Rd. East


A testing time.

I know this road so well.

I hope the man does?

A ridge of snow make the centre line.


So far from home.

Yet I know the tarmac,

Like the ridges on my hands.

Voices that frequently turned to laughs.


A sign glows.

Trespassers will be prosecuted.

It should have read,

Family’s to be divided.


Wind skims the waves.

Loch so vast.

Again I’m by water,

Contemplating my past.

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
