Creatures of the Valleys


Up and down the valley

It’s the same. In the streets and the shops

On the buses and at the stops -

The creatures of the valley.


Frightening sights on crutches or

In wheelchairs. Tattooed, 

Misshapen, bent, toothless, unshaven,

Ill-clothed, wild-eyed.


A shuffling, shaking, cigarette-puffing

Shoal of low income locals darting this way and that.

Ill-tempered voices cracked and thin but

Also fat and merry with mirth too.


Bursting out of nowhere and scattering

This swarm of fish like variety,

Up swims Dawson. Like a playful dolphin

Leaping and diving, disregarding.


An artist and joker is Dawson.

Sharp as a needle. An elbow in your ribs and a guffaw

At an inadvertent pun. And then we’re on to

Paintings and drawings and writings.

Amongst the minnows and sprats

The jellyfish and octopi, here is a creature

Of some different substance. Eager to

Share his joy in colour and paint.


So I’ve nicknamed him Daubson,  

Which I think he’d like. A colourful creature

Amongst the everyday.

A fellow creative in his hideaway.
