Photo of the gibbous moon, hand-held long exposurePhoto of the gibbous moon in light cloud, hand-held long exposureBack garden 6 o’clock. Gritty tang of wet coal, a sodden mess of leaves below the infrared beam. Lift up my camera and catch the bulgy moon in a veil of fast clouds spinning across from the north east. A few specks of cold rain, flickery brown-red iris.
