Motocross Drag by Nick Power

After the beachfront fair
they sit

watch men
heave painted scaffold into
vans

argue about
inter-breeding animals
and drug mules

drink and sniff and watch for
movement

there, like hornets under a
gunnysack muffled sun

two scooters burst across the
wet sand
toward the panorama of infinite
Blackpool

each rider dreaming up
the myth of himself

Nick Power

I have had two perfect-bound books, ‘Small Town Chase’ and ‘Holy Nowhere’ published by erbacce-press, and have recently completed a forthcoming third collection, ‘Caravan’. I have had poems published at Your One Phone Call, M58, The Camel Saloon, Coney’s Loft, Ink Sweat and Tears, and PARIAH Press.
