Poetry: Flats by Tom Stuckey



there are some new but abandoned flats 

by the sea where a friend lives 

there was a dispute with the power people 

and some shadiness with the developer 


bunny rabbits have made it their home now 

along with seagulls and vandals 


wind howls through it day and night 

and rust has set in with the exposure to the rain 


one man committed suicide when he lost his life savings

to the developer who took off to Panama


one bunny rabbit stood upright against the wall by

the road blind and diseased


the waves crashed in as they always have done

and always will

Tom Stuckey is a poet from Devon, England.
