You dressed like an archetypal
Fifties anglo-celtic school-book granny
With a bonnet, floral white and brown frock
And a poster declaring “Grannies from Gloucester”
Conjuring suffragettes marching into history.
There was solidarity in my heart:
A no coal seam gas Granny on the go so
Gloucester’s river will run green, coursing through the postcard hills
Of our imagination.
