The old know and the young suspect by Christopher Hopkins

The old know and the young suspect

The wind changed and
blunted the song
with its sally and rush.
We see the faces left,
mouthing nothings.

A tune fades in for a beat
on a lull in the wind,
but the passage cant be placed
to words we know.
The guilty flee with no one chasing them.

Christopher Hopkins, was born and raised in Neath, South Wales, surrounded by machines and mountains, until he moved to Oxford in his early twenties.
