David Hinchliffe: Chapel on the Bridge
I’ve been inside and seen
the five hundred years old door when it was a jail house.
I have seen the bridge when it was in flood
I would have been 10 years old in the 1960s.
I once threw 20 cigarettes in the river on the way to work.
Then bought some more from the shop. I would have been in my 20s.
I could have kicked myself for throwing my cigarettes.
Now, I am 61 and still on the bridge.
