Mapping the campus of Loughborough University – in poetry.

Holywell at Night

Iron lights pout
from stands be
tween parked cars. A
work of physics and
corporate hospital
ity. Reception-desk-wel
come. We save.
Swansculpture model
swanlife. Water feature’s
a safe haven.
Refresh batter
ry. Dayworkers pull a
way, driving out to
hermit cells from anchor-rage.


The forest plays with orange upland
rock, switching dark
feathered shapes across
the hill’s back. Here,
dusk rolls down the fields
to a concrete belly.
The upturned lights reach
into it, begging
to be taken home.
