Electrifying


Hauf a wa’

stood alangsides

the forraway back

two streets doon.

 

Bombed-oot hooses

still hud live wires

stickin oot, waitin

tae go aff.

 

Wahn wire hingin

fae the first flair,

jist

oot o reach,

beckoned n sparked

 

an we’d take a runnin

jump

but never goat a

grip o it’s winkin eye.

 

We made up fur it

by gettin an auld battery,

nthen wahn ae us licked it

while we a’ held hauns.
