Fulham Street, 1960

The London Magazine - - NEWS - An­gela Kirby

Spas­tic, spas­tic - how do you ig­nore them and their cat-calls, my bow-bent boy as those in­vis­i­ble strings pluck back your head and arms?

You are splayed across pave­ments while the satchel hangs straight as a plumb past horse­shoe ver­te­brae.

Some­how your hips and shoul­ders pivot you to school but what strong mag­net pulls and guides you there my dar­ling, my lovely?

Surely, with twisted head and lolling eyes, you see only the swirling birds and clouds for ge­og­ra­phy.
