Total Raised: £4250

There is field, and we are in it.
This is it, you say
crouching low over your shoes.

We prepared to leave as
milk bottles came
chose instead the ones
the tide brings - green

buckets on ropes
        hanging low
from our shoulders. We
find the cows out
in the field. A drunken farmer
too busy making
snow angels. We milk instead

then walk the twelve 
      miles to the beach 
avoiding slot machines 
until our beds are checked. 

On the edge of the pier
    we can begin again
to see ourselves. We dip
chipped mugs deep in buckets
    for our bones.
