The London Magazine - - NEWS - Will Vi­gar

Your broth­ers, tall and hand­some, caught my at­ten­tion and stole my breath. Rapt by their dom­i­nance over the sky­line, I dreamed of be­ing wrapped in their ag­gre­gate arms.

From the brow of Shire­cliffe Top, look­ing down into Neepsend val­ley, rem­nants of in­dus­try - out­lined in soot and sul­phur, girder and rub­ble - gave way to your coy an­gu­la­tions. A shapely

anatomy echo­ing the ser­pen­tine Don, gen­tly mock­ing its old-fash­ioned volup­tuous me­an­der­ing, dressed in the sci-fi fu­ture drag we were promised in 1940s pulp fic­tion.

Broth­ers im­pas­sive, I fell for you.
