Bellever Blues by Rose Cook

Bellever Blues


The Youth Hostel frightens and annoys

a child part of me that refuses to be

institutionalised – the notices, plastic flowers,

one neglected dragon plant by the sink.

It does not feel young at all –

the wildlife posters blued by the sun.

Outside a horse laughs.
