Serene Places

Another Poem for the Pavement by Rodney Young (extract)

Pure gases being so enjoyed in central places; so many unknown faces,

Unperceived silent gazes, but all alone, paying least attention to pedestrians;

Consciously refusing to respond to messages on your phone, thoughts of your newest loved one wouldn´t leave you alone

Imagining you’re holding hands tightly together walking towards imaginary divine places

  • Rodney wrote this while at No Second Night Out North Hub in Hackney which is run by St Mungo’s.
