Poetic MUSA – Grangemouth Image by Alan Davie

MUSA recently took part in StAnza poetry festival. Below is one of the five fantastic poems which won our competition and are now on display in MUSA.

Grangemouth Image

Tree of eyes, red river, a childhood’s carpet

seen from the air now, from far away, streets and bricks’

sticky ladder rungs, church like a gravestone, years laid out

in boxes. Under the flares, under the flames, it was always midnight,

the moon as bright as day: your smell on me still,

hot glittering oils, sugar fine as smashed glass.
