New Poetry by David Ades

The Upside to Being Down
The Ferris Wheel circles
through vibrating air,

rising into skylines,
into harbours and cityscapes,
into puzzles of sky and cloud,

caught in a jigsaw of
steel cables and rocking carriages,

moods dissipating
like burnt off fog,
children rising into laughter:

and the day holds so much more

in the palm of its opened hand.

- David Ades 2015
