Christopher Major's poetry has appeared in a number of print U.K. magazines and online recently, including: Zygote, Snakeskin, High Horse, Poetry Kit, Lily, Stirring, Can We Have Our Ball Back, Out of Order and Spent Meat. He lives in Staffs, England.

His clothes pool
at his feet,
baggy skin hangs
sags and wrinkles.
When paisley clad
he's offered cigs
and sleep pressed
out of foil packs.

The lucky few have family,
'special days',
perhaps carefuly crafted,
moulded by hands that flip
and splat his future:
lonely nights,
musty rooms,
nothing better to reach
for than the nurse alarm ..........
