Snippets (viii) Giffnock (iii) Fragments (i)

The tiniest moments of recollection

Colin’s dog. Kizzie. Black, smooth haired

Roasting fallen apples on the central-heating vent

Squatting on concrete slabs playing Action Man

Brian, leaving for Australia

Sitting in Mrs Gamzus’ class

British bull-dog head-injury

Blue-tits and compromised aluminium milk bottle tops

Frozen attic windows


Stockinged feet radiator

Jerry-Lang fishmonger

Jumble-sale and bric-a-brac

High-stakes Scrabble and red woollen jumpers

Summer nights and late to bed

Scraping ice from Mini windows

Morecambe and Wise

The Daily Record

38A to Rouken Glen

Snottites rolling down the railway bridge

Crinkly Voorsht fried with eggs

Mrs Firth, you still send shivers down my spine
