‘…of grey have no fear…’   David Peace

the blade

the knife

the breath

the prayer

the shining lead

the black the white

the sharpened point

the many shades of grey

the washing of the hands

the tearing of the squares

the labour before the labour

the rituals of the preparation

the rituals of the preparation

the labour before the labour

the tearing of the squares

the washing of the hands

the many shades of grey

the heartbeat slowed

the sharpened point

the black the white

the shining lead

the prayer

the breath

the knife

the blade
